The adage that a supercomputer is a complicated device that turns a compute bound problem into an IO bound problem is becoming ever more apparent in the age of big data. The trick to avoid the painful truth in this adage is to ensure that the application workload is dominated by streaming IO operations.
Discovery of the last neutrino mixing angle — one of Science magazine’s top 10 breakthroughs of the year 2012 — was announced in March 2012, just a few months after the Daya Bay Neutrino Experiment’s first detectors went online in southeast China. Collaborating scientists from China, the United States, the Czech Republic and Russia were thrilled that their experiment was producing more data than expected
The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center has a straightforward approach to data: When any of the center’s 4,500 users need access to their data, NERSC needs to be able to deliver. It’s an approach that’s worked well for 39 years and helps NERSC’s users annually publish more than 1,500 scientific papers.
The HPC market is entering a kind of perfect storm. For years, HPC architectures have tilted farther and farther away from optimal balance between processor speed, memory access and I/O speed. As successive generations of HPC systems have upped peak processor performance without corresponding advances in per-core memory capacity and speed, the systems have become increasingly compute centric

Conventional data memory works on the basis of electrons that are moved around and stored. However, even by atomic standards, electrons are extremely small. It is very difficult to control them, for example by means of relatively thick insulator walls, so that information will not be lost over time. This does not only limit storage density, it also costs a great deal of energy.

Laboratory data can be automatically and securely uploaded from instruments to a private cloud and processed on the cloud, enabling workflow execution and data mining in a fraction of the time.
The ability for well-heeled individuals to carry a terabyte of information on the same keychains holding their car keys paints a dramatic picture of the penetration solid-state drive (SSD) storage is going to make in the consumer space in 2013. In contrast to double-digit SSD product growth, the latest quarterly reports from the two major hard disk manufacturers show that demand for spinning disk technology remains flat.
