Mission Statement

The mission of the OpenSFS Technical Working Group (TWG) is to work with the Lustre community to ensure that Lustre continues to support the stability, performance, and management requirements of the OpenSFS members as HPC compute platforms continue to scale. The TWG is responsible for creating a technical roadmap for the OpenSFS community. To complete the roadmap, the TWG gathers requirements from the Lustre HPC community, initiates RFPs for important features, and works with contractors to meet these requirements. The TWG works closely with the OpenSFS board to review requirements and prioritize development projects.


  • Gather Requirements
  • Generate Statement of Work/Request for Proposals
  • Develop Resource Allocation Proposals
  • Work with Contractors on Technical Requirements
  • Create High Level Estimate of Impacts/Costs to Meet Requirements

More information can be found in the TWG white paper.
