Workshop: Exascale I/O Challenges

Date: 2016-11-18 09:00 - 13:00

At SC16 in Salt Lake City, the European funded NEXTGenIO project organizes a workshop on the topic of 'Exascale I/O: Challenges, Innovations, Solutions'. We are excited to be invited to this workshop and present the innovations on I/O developed within the DEEP-ER project.

NEXTGenIO's motivation for the topic: 'Traditionally, the HPC field has treated I/O like an afterthought – highest compute performance and efficiency took precedence for developing systems and applications. With applications having become more diverse and complex and handling huge data amounts, HPC systems rapidly growing in size, and the drive to minimize energy use, this has fundamentally changed: providing highly scalable and efficient parallel I/O is now seen as a major challenge for HPC systems and system software (SW), and a prerequisite for achieving Exascale levels of delivered performance.'

Hope to see you all there!
