In this Guide, we take a look at what Lustre on infrastructure AWS delivers for a broad community of business and commercial organizations struggling with the challenge of big data and demanding storage growth.

The recent release of a commercial version of the Lustre* parallel file system running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) was big news for business data centers facing ever expanding data analysis and storage demands. Now, Lustre, the predominant high-performing file system installed in most of the supercomputer installations around the world, could be deployed to business customers in a hardened, tested, easy to manage and fully supported distribution in the cloud.  Proven to scale up to extreme levels of storage performance and capacity as measured in tens or even hundreds of petabytes, with shared and accessible to tens of thousands of clients, Lustre combines high throughput with high availability using vendor-neutral server, storage and interconnect hardware
coupled with various distributions of Linux.

Data – The Next Big Challenge

For a long time, the industry’s biggest big data technical challenge was squeezing as many compute cycles as possible out of silicon chips so they could get on with solving the really important, and often gigantic problems in science and engineering faster than was ever thought possible. Today, by clustering computers to work together on problems, scientists are free to consider even larger and more complex real-world problems to compute, and data to analyze.  Now the new technical challenge is keeping those very fast compute engines fed with a constant and rich stream of data.
