The unique challenges in the field of nuclear high energy physics are already pushing the limits of storage solutions today, however, the projects planned for the next ten years call for storage capacities, performance and access patterns that exceed the limits of many of today's solutions.

This talk will present the limitations in network and storage and suggest possible architectures for tomorrow's storage implementations in this field and show results of first performance tests done on various solutions (Lustre, NFS, Block Object storage, GPFS ..) for typical application access patterns.

Learning Objectives

Shared file system and storage performance requirements in science workloads
Setup and results of performance measurements of different file systems: the LUSTRE FS, NFS, BOS, GPFS
Technology differences between several file systems and storage solutions
