Solid State Disk technologies are increasingly replacing high-speed hard disks as the storage technology in high-random-I/O environments. There are several potentially I/O bound services within the typical LHC Tier-2 in the back-end, with the trend towards many-core architectures continuing, worker nodes running many single-threaded jobs and storage nodes… CONTINUE READING
