I realize there is a lot of interest regarding the future of Lustre at Oracle. Since change in control, Oracle and Sun leaders are working together closely to build on our success with Lustre and the Open Storage product line and deliver increasingly better HPC storage solutions to our customers.
I'm pleased to say with confidence that Oracle will continue to invest in Lustre. From engineering to sales to deployment and support, it's the same great people working together to make Lustre a success at Oracle.
Oracle will honor all Lustre support commitments and allow customers to renew their support contracts when the time comes. We value our long-standing customers and look forward to continuing good relationships.
The Lustre User Group 2010, our 8th annual seminar, will continue as planned. I look forward to seeing many long standing users this spring and introducing you to the growing Lustre community at Oracle.
I realize you probably have more questions and we will be able to answer them soon. I promise that we'll communicate a more detailed plan for Lustre by the end of March 2010. You can also sign up for the Lustre-Announce mailing list to receive the latest Lustre announcements from Oracle.
