OpenSFS is a technical organization focused on high-end open-source file system technologies. The goals of the organization are to:
- provide a forum for collaboration among entities deploying file systems on leading edge high performance computing (HPC) systems
- communicate future requirements to the Lustre file system developers
- support a release of the Lustre file system designed to meet these goals
The group’s initial focus is the Lustre parallel file system, which supports many of the requirements of leadership class HPC simulation environments, has a diverse development community and is open-source software.
