DescriptionLUSTRE is the leading open source file system for HPC and now supports many HPC infrastructures even beyond its traditional stronghold in academaia and scientific research. It has gained acceptance in segments like financial services, the energy sector, manufacturing, life sciences and digital content creation.

At this year’s ISC BoF developers, administrators and solution providers will gather to discuss the current roadmap, new features, innovative developments and deployments as well as new challenges and the current status of the LUSTRE community that continues to drive LUSTRE forward.

At the BoF we will focus on the recent feature developments and discuss how they will shape the next years of LUSTRE deployment around the world. Examples of important and requested features are
Progressive file layouts (PFL), File Level Redundancy (FLR) and the ability to scale metadata servers (Distributed Namespace). We will address benefits, experiences and issues with released versions up to LUSTRE 2.10.x but will also discuss features planned for releases including 2.13 scheduled for end of 2019.

The session will start with a short introduction given by the EOFS and OpenSFS chairs about the status and structure of the LUSTRE community followed by a short summary of the LUSTRE users group meeting (LUG 2018, April 24-26) hosted by Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, USA.

The key part will be a presentation of the LUSTRE roadmap from the current release up to the end of 2019 and the related discussion topics with a special focus on the features, requirements and challenges.
