Storage Performance Modeling for Future Systems

Yoonho ParkIn this video from the 2016 MSST Conference, Yoonho Park from IBM presents: Storage Performance Modeling for Future Systems.

“The burst buffer is an intermediate, high-speed layer of storage that is positioned between the application and the parallel file system (PFS), absorbing the bulk data produced by the application at a rate a hundred times higher than the PFS, while seamlessly draining the data to the PFS in the background. Consequently, the burst buffer will be able to expedite the rate of I/O, allowing the application to return to performing computation sooner. The burst buffer is built from non-volatile memory devices that have several desirable properties such as high I/O throughput, low access latency, and higher reliability.”
