Gluster, Lustre, FraunhoferFS and GPFS in a Windows HPC or LINUX HPC environment

Dear HPCers,
I’m trying to collect together as much information about the various distributed and parallel filesystems as I cannot find good information on the subject. It is my intention to compile a ‘rogues gallery’ based on users witness statement. Looking for info on performance, scalability, supportability and the all important dandruff quotient.


From my point of view most important differences are that Lustre and GPFS require of dedicated hardware meanwhile Gluster and Fraunhofer can aggregate “small” storages in one without specific and expensive hardware.
Also you have to notice that Lustre and GPFS provides you with a more robust and reliable storage.
Lustre and Gluster are open source, and Fraunhofer and GPFS don’t.



NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
