Lustre 2.2

Share this on social media:

Whamcloud has announced the availability of Lustre 2.2, the first of the company’s releases to be partially funded by financial support from OpenSFS, the North American Lustre community group. Features include improved support for mmap and better performance using checksums, increased performance accessing object attributes (file sizes/xtime), imperative recovery, and better performance when multiple processes access the same directory in parallel.

‘Collaboration around Lustre development has never been better,’ commented Norman Morse, CEO of OpenSFS. ‘The collaborative community support model led by the open source file system community with important leadership and contributions by Whamcloud has enabled Lustre to not only meet end user requirements but also follow a strict roadmap schedule. Lustre 2.2 is a great example of what open source technology can accomplish. Congratulations to all community contributors.’
