Can Lustre be used to store data like streaming audio / video? I’ve been scolded about considering it for DB storage but I’m looking at the relative merits of Lustre vs HDFS.

I’m moving to a clustered DB setup and wondering about Cassandra / Lustre vs Hadoop (IE HBase / HDFS). One offers flexibility in terms of mixing hardware components while the other is a ‘one stop shop’.

Not trying to elicit a religious war – and yes, I’ve been reading as much as I can find about this. Just hoping for the opinion(s) of this side of the table.
