Can you only imagine how important this information is for all people (like us) pushing for debian ?

We spent a year googling and grabbing information ... especially for you HPC cluster upgrade.
Lustre and GPFS have finally been discarded recently (for price reason I think) leaving plain good old NFS and opening the door to debian. Having such evidence of 2PB lustre storage would have been an key element !

Funny: here accelerator control moved first from RH to debian :)
