The spider system at the Oak ridge national laboratory's Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) is the world's largest scale Lustre parallel file system. Envisioned as a shared parallel file system capable of delivering both the bandwidth and capacity requirements of the OLCF's diverse computational environment, the project had a number of ambitious goals. To support the workloads of the OLCF's diverse computational platforms, the aggregate performance and storage capacity of spider exceed that of the authors' previously deployed systems by a factor of 6x - 240 GB/sec, and 17x - 10 petabytes, respectively.
