Interesting poll on Lustre futures

See here on LinkedIn.

In case you can’t see it, the premise of the question is “Would you buy storage based on Lustre”, and it specifically points to Rich B’s article at InsideHPC.

Choices are

  1. Yes, still Lustre
  2. No, I’d choose Panasas
  3. No, I’d choose GPFS
  4. No, I’d choose Gluster
  5. No, another solution

Its a small, self selecting, and probably badly biased sample, but whats interesting is that about 20% each seem like they would choose Lustre, Panasas, or another solution and about 40% would choose GPFS, with no one choosing Gluster.

25 people responding, and again, a small, self selecting group. Statistics are likely not really representative.

This said, I think we have a pretty good readership here and at InsideHPC. I’d like to get the same type of poll going. See the poll thingy on the right …
