Summary

Lustre is a high-performance GPLed cluster filesystem from clusterfs.com.

Rationale

There are several use cases where you want a scalable shared filesystem with high through-put performance and POSIX:y semantics. Lustre is at the moment the most interesting one, and shipping Ubuntu with or ready for running Lustre would be awesome for that set of Ubuntu users that need it.

Use cases

Design

Lustre has three parts, clients (mounting the filesystem), a metadata server (keeping track of what's where) and object storage targets (OSTs, where the data is stored).

Implementation
