Session Details

Name: How to Solve the I/O Challenge in the Future
Time: Monday, June 17, 2013
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Room:   Hall 2
CCL - Congress Center Leipzig
Chair(s):   Achim Streit, SCC & KIT
Abstract:   With scaling system size I/O becomes a bottleneck in future HPC systems moving towards the exascale regime. In this session three examples of state-of-the-art work in this domain are given. In the first talk a solution called SIONlib for addressing this challenge on the application level by means of a parallel I/O library is presented. Focusing more on the I/O-system side the second talk presents a solution from DDN that eliminates both hard and soft layers in the data transfer chain. As future HPC systems and their I/O-system might get more hierarchical and federated than today, the third talk gives an outlook on what distributed storage management technologies such as dCache can offer for HPC.
