LXer: Linux 3.11 for Workgroups Adds Lustre
Published at LXer:

Among the big new items included in the Linux 3.11 kernel is the initial support for the Lustre filesystem. Lustre is a widely deployed high-performance computing (HPC) filesystem used by many of the world's top supercomputers. It got its start with Cluster File Systems, which was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 2007. Sun became part of Oracle in 2010, and Lustre languished somewhat. In February of 2013, Xyratex acquired the name "Lustre" and its associated intellectual property assets from Oracle.
