Whamcloud and Swiss National Supercomputing Centre sign Lustre support agreement

18 Jun 2012 Danville - Whamcloud, a venture-backed company formed by a worldwide network of high-performance computing (HPC) storage industry veterans, has signed a Lustre support agreement with the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS).

Founded in 1991 and situated in Lugano, Switzerland, CSCS is an autonomous unit of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich). CSCS develops and promotes technical and scientific services for Swiss research. CSCS has a Lustre-based scratch file system for their flagship supercomputer system, Monte Rosa, which is a 47,872 core Cray XE6. For the file system, they have used the latest Intel Sandy Bridge server hardware, FDR InfiniBand and Lustre v2.2.

"CSCS is one of the shining stars in the European HPC community. We are thrilled to be working with them at the leading edge of Lustre technology", stated Brent Gorda, CEO of Whamcloud. "The combination of Cray compute and Lustre is a winning combination and affords CSCS and Whamcloud to focus down on metadata performance optimization and reliability for the benefit of the entire community."

"When choosing leading-edge technologies CSCS must rely on a strong partnership with an industry leader for Lustre support. We chose Whamcloud because we see them as the premiere independent Lustre support and development company", stated Colin McMurtrie, Group Leader, National HPC Systems, CSCS-Swiss National Supercomputing Centre. "We look forward to a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship over the coming year."

Whamcloud and CSCS will be working together to drive performance gains in Lustre metadata performance, tune and optimize the file system to get maximum performance from the back-end storage hardware, and undertake a continuous process to improve the reliability of the Lustre file system.
