As Supercomputers Approach Exascale, Experts Wrestle with Big Data

Jul 21, 2011 |

The current generation of petascale supercomputers are generating enormous quantities of data, and creating unprecedented challenges in managing it. The next generation of multi-petaflop, and eventually exaflop supercomputers, will take these challenges to the next level. Galen Shipman, who heads the Technology Integration group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) talks about the data management technologies being employed at OLCF today and what will be needed to support their future exascale machines.
