On the Long Path to Exascale, Storage is Already Working Smarter

Infinite Memory

As the countdown to Exascale continues, Exascale-like storage problems are already showing up in today’s massively parallel, heterogeneous HPC systems. Historically, storage and I/O have kept pace with growing system demands, but, because of the limitations of spinning media and the cost of solid state storage technologies, storage performance improvements have come at a disproportionately higher cost and lower efficiency than their compute counterparts.

Argonne Moves Towards Exascale

Argonne National Labs is developing Argo, a prototype exascale operating system.
