EIOW architects and implements an upper level I/O middleware system which can be integrated into various HPC software components.
The middleware will increase usability and provide novel management and analysis features.
Over 40 institutions participate in the development of the open source middleware. We welcome all contributions.
Birds-of-a-Feather Session at SC'13 11/10/2013
Exascale10 / EIOW will be represented in a BoF at the Supercomputing Conference on Wednesday at 17:30.
We will now share design documents using Google Drive and encourage everyone to comment or ask questions regarding the content. Depending on our requirements we might switch to a more professional tool in the future.EXASCALE 10 MEETING AT ISC 20/06/2013
The meeting at ISC'13 was a big success. The agenda and presentations are available here.REGULAR PHONE CONFERENCE 28/02/2013
We now organize a bi-weekly phone conference to give a status update and to discuss relevant topics. Meeting notes will be released for the public.MAILING LISTS AVAILABLE 25/12/2012
The EIOW mailing lists (google groups) are now publicly available for subscription. The design and development of EIOW components will be discussed in the "discussion" group.
EIOW IS GAINING INDUSTRY MOMENTUM 11/12/2012
A vision and scope paper has been published during SC'12 as a white paper.

A presentation was given at the 11th HLRS/hww Workshop on Scalable Global Parallel File Systems
|Engineering Exa-Scale Storage Middleware System
The EIOW intends to architect and ultimately implement an open source, upper level I/O middleware system suitable for exa-scale storage. It intends to be primarily motivated by the requirements of the applications, management and system architectures, and to a lesser extent by the constraints and traditions of the storage industry. The resulting middleware system is targeting adoption in the HPC community by creation of or integration into various HPC software components, such as libraries. We also target adoption by storage vendors to layer this on either existing or new products targeting scalable high performance storage.
