Exa and Yotta Scale Data - Are We Ready?Moderator:
William Kramer (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)
Soon after Teraflops, HPC facilities were handling Peta-Byte data. The challenges of Exa, Zeta and Yotta-byte data will be a significant, possibly dominate, limiter on productivity of HPC users. This panel will address the question "Is the HPC community ready for Exa -Byte data?" and discuss challenges of Yotta-bytes. Specific topics include:how to maintain performance and reliability while storage systems exponentially increase in size, files and components; how to provide information lifecycle management across loosely integrated storage subsystems; how to enhance the ability to locate and use exa bytes of data to the right place at the right time; enhanced tools that will be needed to assure data integrity; and exa-byte data access methods. The Panel will make predictions and recommendations for Yotta Scale data as well.
