Host Site:

San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC)

Host site URL:

Managing data efficiently on a supercomputer is very important from both users' and system’s perspectives. Users need to be aware of various data storage and management mechanisms, their impact on application and system performance. In this webinar, we will cover a few basic data management techniques and I/O best practices in the context of the Expanse system at SDSC. We will learn about the file systems that are part of Expanse and discuss the pros and cons of using these file systems in terms of I/O performance, storage capacity, shared access, and backup.

Instructor: Manu Shantharam is a Senior Computational Research Scientist in the San Diego Supercomputer Center. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University in 2012. His research interests include performance analysis of HPC applications, sparse scientific computations, scheduling HPC workloads, and resiliency in HPC.
