As high-performance computing increases in popularity and performance, the demand for similarly capable input and output systems rises. Parallel I/O takes advantage of many data server machines to provide linearly scaling performance to parallel applications that access storage over the system area network. The demands placed on the network by a parallel storage system are considerably different than those imposed by message-passing algorithms or data-center operations; and, there are many… CONTINUE READING
