  • Abstract: This project is concerned with the I/O challenges that arise from the convergence between these two different paradigms. It is clear data analytics tools cannot simply replace their typical storage solutions for the HPC I/O stack, centered on the abstraction of files and powered by a parallel file system, because their workload is not well suited for that and would observe poor performance. Moreover, the separated storage infrastructure breaks the data affinity idea in which they are built upon. Finally, even among traditional HPC applications there is a need to minimize data movement, as it imposes high latency and increases energy consumption.
