Because Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre metrics and diagnostics are included, admins have access to a comprehensive view of Lustre file systems, servers, and clients as managed resources through Bright’s GUI.
The enhancements offer significant value by making Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre configuration and setup easy, while also reducing the ongoing administrative burden through proactive diagnostics based on Lustre-specific metrics and tests, for example.
Designed to enable fully parallel I/O throughput across thousands of clients, servers, and storage devices, the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software enhances the performance and scalability of the Lustre parallel file system for HPC workloads. End users who need the benefits of large-scale, high-bandwidth storage can easily access all of Lustre’s capabilities through the integrated combination of IEEL and Bright Cluster Manager.
