Hi there,

at this point we are using Quantum Storenext as our production  
filesystem because of its multiplatform capabilities (Windows/Mac).
We already own SAM-FS/QFS but I consider implementing Lustre as second  
tier to swap temporarily production data from our fast/small CVFS to  
big and cheap Lustre (as well as bringing in raw media data for  
preselection and to keep it there for security purpose during  
postproduction phase).
After that we want to tape it to our Storagetek Tape Library with SAM- 
But I want to keep things simple and thus my question:
Is it possible to use Lustre as substitution for QFS, so could I stay  
with 3 tiers or do I have to implement QFS as third, Tape Library as
