Programmable and Adaptable Storage for AI-oriented HPC Ecosystems

The PAStor project aims at providing a novel Software-Defined Storage (SDS) solution for HPC that can efficiently handle I/O flows from multiple AI workloads by automatically adjusting storage configurations and resources to dynamically meet application requirements. The proposed solution will be crucial to address the current storage performance bottleneck and fairness challenges of HPC infrastructures. The research output from PAStor will be released as an open-source prototype that will provide the first building block towards a novel storage architecture suited for the exascale computing infrastructure. By gathering the expertise of INESC TEC and Hood College researchers in the AI and distributed storage fields, and by including researchers from TACC and MACC with experience on managing HPC infrastructures, the project will produce new high quality research findings and advance the state-of-the-art for storage solutions currently deployed at HPC centers.
