[ONLINE] IO-SEA: Long Term Data Storage in IO-SEA and Object Storage in HPC Applications





This webinar will expose the different facets of the software stack developed by the IO-SEA project. It will provide training on the following:

  • Object storage on disks and tapes
  • Hierarchical Storage Management applied to object store
  • Ephemeral IO services with a focus on
    • Tools to export object store as NFS shares
    • On-demand burst buffers
    • Accesses via the Amazon S3 protocol
  • Users' point of view and workflow management
  • Monitoring of the whole system

Benefits for the attendees, what will they learn:

  • Issues specific to storage from an exascale perspective
  • Pieces of software designed to address those issues
  • Object stores used in an exascale environment
  • Massive storage management






User experience on working in a supercomputing environment, some notions on storage systems and parallel programming could be useful.
