Cray Sonexion Software
The Cray Sonexion System Manager (CSSM) software application simplifies the experience of deploying and managing a Lustre file system. Graphical and command line interfaces — integrated with third-party tools — provide system administrators and users an intuitive interface to deploy, monitor and optimize the entire system.
CSSM provides comprehensive status and control of all system components, including storage hardware, RAID, operating system and the Lustre file system in an integrated easy-to-use administrator interface. A web client hosted on one of the dual controller modules in the Metadata Management Unit (MMU) interfaces with all distributed system manager component services. CSSM also integrates a comprehensive set of community-developed tools to collect, index and analyze fast-moving data.
System-wide software and firmware upgrades are executed through a simple and single interface in the CSSM system, removing the complexity and risks of traditional large Lustre implementations.
Cray proudly supports OpenSFS, a technical organization focused on high-end open-source file system technologies.
