While this is something that would be interesting to implement in Lustre, it isn't how Lustre is deployed today.

In the 2.11 release, there is the ability to mirror files across OSTs, and you could install a separate MDT and OSTs at each site and have "local" subdirectories located on the local MDT, with an OST pool defined to create files on the local OST.

That said, it would probably be a lot easier to just have 3 separate Lustre filesystems and use a higher-level tool to do resync between the sites.
