In today’s data centers, big data has placed a greater demand for performance at large scale for storage systems. The Lustre* file system was purpose-built to provide sustained storage performance and stability on a large scale for high-performance computing (HPC) systems. However, as commercial enterprises have begun to deploy HPC technologies, Intel created an enhanced version of Lustre known as Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software. Enterprise Edition enables fully parallel I/O throughput across clients, servers, and storage devices.
Intel® ISA-L provides the tools to help accelerate and optimize storage on Intel® architecture (IA) for everything from small office NAS appliances to enterprise storage systems. Intel® ISA-L can run on various Intel® server processors and provides operation acceleration through the following instruction sets:
