The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has a long history of deploying the world¹s fastest supercomputers and parallel file systems to enable open science. The Lustre file system is the integrative technology that interconnects the major computational resources of the OLCF, providing a high performance center-wide file system environment for our users. As a critical HPC technology, the OLCF plays a leadership role in continuing the advancement and open source development of Lustre through direct contributions to the Lustre code base and our participation as a founding member of Open Scalable File Systems (OpenSFS).
