Benchmarking goodness: Comparing Lustre, GlusterFS, and BeeGFS on Azure

Published Mar 23 2020 01:36 PM 4,959 Views

When we published our benchmarking ebook more than a year ago, little did we know how enduring this topic would be. But who doesn’t love a good side-by-side comparison? The Parallel Virtual File Systems (PVFS) on Microsoft Azure e-book still gives you the scoop from the team's performance tests of Lustre, GlusterFS, and BeeGFS.


Now we’ve added information about using Azure Lv2-series virtual machines that feature NVMe disks. If an ephemeral file system is an option for you, this configuration works with Lustre to provide a cost-effective PVFS.

We also updated the ebook a few months ago to include a new BeeGFS template library, complete with sample templates and scripts, that you can use to deploy BeeGFS. This template set provides a specific storage scenario for an HPC workload.
