Storage Hierarchy Management for Scientific Computing

  title={Storage Hierarchy Management for Scientific Computing},
  author={Ethan L. Miller},
Scientific computation has always been one of the driving forces behind the design of computer systems. As a result, many advances in CPU architecture were first developed for high-speed supercomputer systems, keeping them among the fastest computers in the world. However, little research has been done in storing the vast quantities of data that scientists manipulate on these powerful computers. This thesis first characterizes scientists’ usage of a multi-terabyte tertiary storage system… CONTINUE READING
