Managing Lustre on AWS – Andy Pollock and Aurélien Degrémont, Amazon
In this presentation we will introduce Amazon FSx for Lustre, a new managed service offering launched at AWS Re:Invent in November 2018. While we already offered Elastic File System (EFS) as a file system on AWS, we heard from customers that their workloads required greater throughput and lower latencies, and they were willing to sacrifice durability to achieve that. These customers often named Lustre by named as the “F1 Ferrari” of file systems for fast file. Working backwards from customer needs, we introduced an unreplicated managed Lustre service to fill this gap, and it is now a key accelerator of our investment into the High Performance Computing space.
