Modern Lustre supports compelling features like snapshots but it requires OSDs to use ZFS in order to implement it. Since ZFS and Linux licensing is incompatible, it's not really a supportable solution.

This project has an aim to implement Lustre OSDs using Btrfs underneath them, leveraging the btrfs feature set to enable the features that ZFS-based OSDs provide now in a supportable way.
