Next Generation I/O Solutions for the Exascale - Flyer for SC15

Today most high-end HPC systems employ data storage separate from the main computer system. The I/O subsystem often struggles to deal with the degree of parallelism present simply because too many processors are trying to communicate with the slow disk storage at once. The result is poor I/O performance, which impacts application runtimes and thus science throughput. As we move into the domain of extreme parallelism at the Exascale, we need to address the I/O bottleneck challenge if such systems are to deliver acceptable performance and efficiency for their application user communities.
