DescriptionThe rise of exascale brings major challenges for storage systems, reaching the scalability limits with legacy solutions such as POSIX and parallel file systems. As HPC experts rethink data access paths in the data-intensive HPC paradigm, object store seems a promising path. Both scalable and flexible, it provides options within the HPC ecosystem, whereas it became a cornerstone for cloud. The object storage paradigm lives a plentiful evolution, but has many facets. Is it the next stage of evolution for data storage in HPC as we move towards exascale and beyond? Or is it just a passing fad?
