Forum OpenACS Q&A: Lustre cluster file system for RDBMS?

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
The Lustre cluster file system sounds awfully complicated, but is in production use Lawrence Livermore and some other supercomputing centers. And it supports full POSIX file system semantics - which means you should be able to run an RDBMS on it. I've no idea whether anyone has actually done that or how well it works, though.
