Realising active storage concepts on Blue Gene/Q
With compute performance improving at a faster path than the performance
of the I/O subsystem, adoption of new storage concepts will be necessary
on the path towards exascale systems. Both architectural and technical
opportunities have to be explored. In this talk we will consider on the
one hand the architectural concept of active storage and on the other hand
advances in non-volatile memory technologies. Specifically, we will report
on how both are used in the Blue Gene Active Storage (BGAS) architecture.
We will give an overview on the architecture and explore use concepts.

How do people experience ‘het Ommeland’ (the rural area surrounding the city) and the accessibility of services in this area? How can smart and innovative mobility measures improve accessibility? These are questions on which prof. Taede Tillema wants...
Having accurate and high-quality mortality forecasts has become increasingly important due to the general increase in life expectancy and the social consequences of this.
The high level of alcohol consumption in Europe is a major concern for public health. Differences in alcohol consumption and drinking patterns within Europe – mainly Eastern European men are problematic drinkers – play an important role in the observed...
