Using the Lustre File System

Affiliation: UIUC

Provider: CI-Tutor

Type: Streaming Resource

Description: This tutorial will give you a basic understanding of Lustre an object-based, parallel distributed file system that enables scaling to a large number of nodes (tens of thousands), petabytes (PB) of storage, and high aggregate throughput (hundreds of gigabytes per second). After taking this tutorial you will be able to determine if your application will benefit from its parallelism and if so, how you can use it to achieve optimal I/O performance.
