Terascala Looks to Whamcloud for Level 3 Lustre Support

Today Whamcloud announced that the company will now provide Level 3 Lustre support for Terascala storage appliances.

At Terascala, we’re seeing huge interest in fully supported, packaged Lustre solutions from both traditional HPC customers and commercial organizations that need the performance but lack the technical resources to build and manage their own solutions,” said Steve Butler, CEO at Terascala.  “Our agreement with Whamcloud will enable us to continue to deliver superior support to new and existing customers.”
