There was a presentation at LUG from ANU about using Lustre as a root filesystem:


Based on a presentation given earlier this year I believe that they are still using this system today.

Hi all,
Is anyone using lustre for network boot? (For the filesystems that are loaded after the kernel is brought in by DHCP/tftp)

We are currently using NFS for this but I am wondering if lustre would allow us some more robust features (like programs not crashing on clients when they are modified on the image, a small scale test with lustre in our cluster seemed to suggest that the only change that would trigger a crash was deletion).
