Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre Software
A New Generation of Lustre Software Expands High Performance Computing into the Commercial Enterprise

Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software (Intel® EE for Lustre* software)
unleashes the Lustre parallel file system as an enterprise platform for a broad spectrum of commercial organizations, both large and small. It allows businesses that need large scale, high-bandwidth storage to tap into the power and scalability of Lustre, but with the simplified installation, configuration and monitoring features of Intel® Manager for Lustre* software, a management solution purpose-built for the Lustre file system. Intel EE for Lustre software includes proven support from the Lustre experts at Intel, including worldwide 24x7 technical support.

High Performance Parallel Storage for the Enterprise
Intel EE for Lustre software brings the benefits of Lustre and high performance computing (HPC) to data-intensive businesses. For decision makers seeking to achieve their business goals more quickly and cost effectively, Intel EE for Lustre software offers a parallel file system that enables more powerful computing for improved results and data-driven business and IT intelligence. Intel EE for Lustre software provides open interfaces that promote easy integration and high levels of interoperability with existing infrastructures. Because Lustre is open source software, IT can grow data center storage systems over time and on budget, employing a variety of networking and hardware options.

Product Guides
Key Features
  • Built on open-source Lustre* software
  • Centralized, GUI-based administration for management simplicity
  • Enormous storage capacity
  • Real-time system monitoring or maximum availability
  • Open, documented interfaces for deep integration
  • Rigorously tested, stable software proven across diverse industries
  • I/O throughput in excess of 1 terabyte per second
  • Global 24X7 technical support
Building Blocks
Intel EE for Lustre software is designed to enable fully parallel I/O throughput across thousands of clients, servers and storage devices. Metadata and data are stored on separate servers to allow optimization of each system for the different workloads they present. Intel EE for Lustre can also scale down efficiently to provide fast parallel storage for smaller organizations.
  • Many Lustre configurations are running in production at 500 to 750 gigabytes per second, with leading edge installations achieving throughput in excess of 1 terabyte per second
  • Delivers data faster to critical applications, leading to improved decision-making based on near real-time analysis
  • Massive data flows can utilize a high percentage of underlying storage and network bandwidth, for low performance overhead
  • Provides an innovative edge by allowing an enterprise to run larger and more complex simulations faster and easier
Intel® Manager for Lustre* software consolidates Lustre information in a central,
browser-accessible location for ease of management.
The object-based storage architecture of Intel EE for Lustre software can scale to tens of thousands of clients and petabytes
of data.
  • At 512 petabytes of storage for the current version of Lustre, storage capacity is enormous
  • Lustre was developed to handle the demands of scientific data, and has been tested and trusted at extreme levels of throughput, with no upper limits to its storage scale
Intel EE for Lustre software is based on open source Lustre software, and is hardware, server, and network fabric neutral. Enterprises can scale their storage deployments horizontally, yet continue to have simple-to-manage storage.
  • Intel EE for Lustre promotes multi-vendor solutions, so administrators can customize their storage infrastructure to accommodate their unique storage requirements and budgets
  • Intel Manager for Lustre software adds tools and GUI for fast, efficient management; Intel EE for Lustre software does not require specialized training or expertise to operate
Lustre has been in use in the world’s largest datacenters for over a decade and hardened in the harshest big data environments; recent versions are highly trusted, reliable and well architected. Today’s Lustre has been rigorously tested and proven for diverse markets and real-world use cases.
  • Intel EE for Lustre delivers commercialready Lustre in a package that can scale efficiently both up and down to suit your business workloads, with built-in manageability
  • Intel EE for Lustre software has a clear product roadmap, with predictable releases
  • Intel EE for Lustre software brings together the best and brightest of Lustre expertise coupled with the resources and credibility of Intel
Intel® Manager for Lustre*
Intel Manager for Lustre provides a unified, consistent view of Lustre storage systems and simplifies the installation, configuration, monitoring and overall management of Lustre. The manager consolidates all Lustre information in a central, browser-accessible location for ease of management and reduced complexity.
Intel Manager for Lustre software interfaces allow insights into high-level system performance or in-depth focus into individual components.
Apache Hadoop* Adapter
When organizations operate both Lustre and Apache Hadoop* within a shared infrastructure, there is a strong case for using Lustre as the file system for Hadoop analytics as well as HPC storage. Intel EE for Lustre software includes an Intel-developed adapter which allows users to run Map/Reduce* applications directly on Lustre. This optimizes the performance of Map/Reduce operations while delivering faster, more scalable and easier to manage storage.
  • Hadoop users can access any Lustre files directly from Hadoop, without the need to copy them to the Hadoop environment
  • Using Lustre in combination with Hadoop makes storage management simpler— since the platform will be running a single Lustre file system instance rather than Hadoop instances for each cluster— and makes more productive use of storage assets.
