Podcast: The Storage Taxman: Accounting for Resource Usage at NCAR

Nicole Hemsoth

While most HPC centers track computing usage and utilization, far fewer sites have implemented mechanisms for tracking and accounting for usage of their storage systems. However, as we enter an era of ever-growing data, the need to monitor, track, and analyze user consumption of storage resources is increasingly critical, particularly in petascale environments. We will talk more about this today with David Hart, the manager of the user services section at Computational and Information Systems Laboratory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

More about this accounting and tracking research can be found here:
