FT posts an initial MPI-IO driver for Lustre

The IO working group at Future Technologies Group is mounting up their efforts in enhancing parallel IO for extreme-scale computing. For culturing more research and development on parallel IO issues related to Lustre-based supercomputers, FT posted an initial MPI-IO driver. The long-term objective is to provide a high-performance, open-source, yet unified code base that works for Cray XT and other platforms. This is a joint effort with our collaborators, such as Technology Integration Group at National Center for Computation Sciences, ORNL.
