Birds of a Feather
TimeTuesday, 19 November 20195:15pm - 6:45pm
DescriptionDistributed data services can enhance HPC productivity by providing storage, analysis, and visualization capabilities not otherwise present in conventional parallel file systems. Such services are difficult to develop, maintain, and deploy in a scientific workflow, however, due to the complexities of specialized HPC networks, RDMA data transfers, protocol encoding, and fault tolerance.
This BoF will bring together a growing community of researchers, developers, vendors, and facility operators who are either using or developing HPC data services. Participants will share and discuss practical experiences, implementation examples, new features, and best practices to construct and deploy production-quality, high-performance distributed services.
