HPC I/O in the Data Center
Performance Analysis and Optimization
TimeThursday, June 20th9am - 6pm
DescriptionManaging scientific data at large scale is challenging for scientists but also for the host data center.
To effectively manage the data load within a data center, I/O experts must understand how users expect to use these new storage technologies and what services they should provide in order to enhance user productivity. We seek to ensure a systems-level perspective is included in these discussions.
The HPC-IODC workshop is a forum to present and discuss work that addresses the storage challenge from a unique perspective, moving the focus from the application-centric perspective to the perspective of data centers and operators.
In the workshop, we bring together I/O experts from data centers and application workflows to share current practices for scientific workflows, issues and obstacles for both hardware and the software stack, and R&D to overcome these issues.
To focus on relevant aspects and streamline the discussion, a list of relevant topics is provided as common structure of the talks.
We welcome submission of scientific papers that are either state-of-the-practice or research oriented, but specifically focused on I/O in the datacenter.
For further information regarding participation, the topics and the mailing list, see the web page.
