Open Problems in Network-aware Data Management in Exa-scale Computing and Terabit Networking Era
Accessing and managing large amounts of data is a great challenge in a collaborative environment where resources/scientists are geographically distributed. There is a need for efficient use of the network infrastructure in order to address the increasing data and compute requirements of large-scale applications. Since the amount of data is continuously growing, traditional techniques of leaving the burden on the user of moving/storing data is not a viable option in many cases. In order to deliver true exascale performance to the application layer, network-aware data management services for resource provisioning, intelligent data-flow and coordination between the host systems is highly desirable. This workshop seeks contribution from academia, government, and industry to discuss emerging trends in use of networking for data management, novel abstraction techniques for data representation, simplification of end-to-end data flow by providing transparent data services, end-to-end resource coordination, and network-aware tools for the scientific community.
