General availability: Lustre® HSM tools now available to import from or export to Azure Storage.
Published date: April 12, 2021
Lustre® HSM (Hierarchical Storage Management) provides the capability to associate a Lustre file system with an external storage system and migrate file data between them.
Now available are the File System Hydrator and Copy Tool, which enables integrating a Lustre file system with an Azure storage account.
The file system hydrator is used to import a file system namespace from an Azure storage account into a Lustre file system with the imported files left in the ‘released’/’exist’ state. The copy tool is used to hydrate the content of the files in the storage account into the Lustre file system on-demand. The copy tool can also be used to archive content of files back into the storage account, including changed or added files.
