In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conferenc, Zhiqi Tao from Intel (formerly of Whamcloud) presents: A Generic Methodology for Optimizing an HPC Storage System.
Designing a large scale, high performance storage system presents significant challenges. This paper describes a step-by-step approach to designing a storage system and presents a design methodology based on an iterative approach that applies at both the component level and the overall system level. The paper includes a detailed case study in which a Lustre storage system is designed using the approach and methodology presented.
