ScaleWorks – Parallel File System Support for Rapid Prototyping of Scalable Applications

Objective

This project conducts research on parallel file system support for scalable applications. The scientific objective is to enable the rapid design and implementation of scalable applications over emerging cost-effective server, network and storage hardware through the use of novel support from an extensible parallel file system. The proposed architecture, ScaleWorks, is designed to address key challenges in the implementation of efficient scalable applications, in accordance with technological and cost-efficiency trends. The project plan includes includes career development and knowledge-transfer activities that will assist the migration of the applicant from the United States, where he has been until recently employed at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY, to the European space. The project will also carry out educational activities that advance the concepts of scalable applications, parallel file systems, and network storage systems in computer and information science, and broader impact activities that will apply innovative distributed network and storage infrastructures to address the computing needs of sensitive sectors, including security, education, and healthcare.
