Mark Parsons presented the project at this BoF session at ISC-HPC 2016. The abstract of the session is below:

"Addressing the I/O bottleneck", ISC-HPC 2016

This talk, by Michele Weiland, was given at the Intel Collaboration Hub at ISC-HPC 2016 in Frankfurt. The talk outlines how the project is using the new 3D XPoint NVRAM technology to address the key issue of I/O bottlenecking in the design of a new system working towards Exascale computing.

The Exascale I/O Challenge - Presentation at 4th ENES Workshop on HPC for Climate and Weather

Mark Parsons delivered this presentation at the 4th ENES Workshop in Toulouse, France, on 6th April 2016.

This talk concerns the challenges involved in reaching Exascale computing and how NEXTGenIO is working towards overcoming these challenges. 

ECMWF’s Next Generation IO for the IFS Model - Presentation at AMS

Starting 2014, ECMWF has embarked on a 10 year research programme on HPC Scalability, aiming to achieve Exascale numerical weather prediction systems by 2025. ECMWF operational forecast generates massive amounts of I/O over very short bursts, accumulating to tens of TB/day, from which millions of user-defined products are generated. Based on expected model resolution increases, by 2020 we estimate the operational model will output hundreds of TB/day and need to archive over a PB/day.
