SC17 Technical Panel: Best Practices for Architecting Performance and Capacity in the Burst Buffer Era

As supercomputing sites prepare for exascale – or are creating plans to take their environments to the next scale of performance – Burst Buffers and new methods for innovative deployments of Flash are rapidly becoming an expectation, and in some cases a mandatory requirement in large-scale HPC procurements. How will this game-changing technology disrupt the way high-performance compute, file and storage systems are architected? Incorporating a Burst Buffer inherently changes how you select, procure and aggregate compute/storage/networking components in order to achieve performance and capacity goals. This cache-centric approach promises to eliminate the performance roadblocks of today’s parallel file systems and dramatically lower costs by changing IO behavior and providing significant cost, power, space and cooling savings. This session will remove ambiguity around cache-centric approaches by exploring the burst buffer storage system design for use by large-scale HPC systems.
