Our MySQL installation stores several Tb of data that doesn't get accessed too often. Over the next six months we're going to be moving to a Lustre based system for much of our data storage and Im wondering how MySQL would behave if it were storing it's innodb folders there.
I can imagine creating a Lustre client on a VM and NFS mounting the folders on the MySQL server but that seems like an extra layer. Putting the MySQL on the lustre client itself means that the Lustre kernel would have to behave nicely.
Either way - anyone tried this? Reasons why or why not?
