Lustre in the Nebula

As reported on Marc Hamilton’s blog, NASA is using Lustre as part of their cloud computing platform:

NEBULA uses the LUSTRE clustering file system (an open-source project maintained by SUN) to provide highly-scalable storage in the hundreds and thousands of terabytes. This is deployed on a cluster of 64-bit storage nodes, allowing nearly-unlimited individual file size, and connected to a dedicated 10GigE network. Never before has such research-grade computing been available in a web application platform.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
