Welcome to SNAPI 2010


IEEE SNAPI 2008 is a leading IEEE workshop on storage networking and will be held in conjunction with the 26th IEEE Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST) on May 3rd, 2010 at Hyatt Regency at Lake Tahoe, Incline Village, NV, USA.




SNAPI 2010 will bring together experts from academia and industry to discuss cutting edge research on parallel and distributed data storage technologies, storage interconnects, and storage management. These topics gain importance based on the tremendous need for storage capacity and I/O performance, which have become critical factors for computing systems, generally, from enterprise systems to computational science and everything in between. As a result, disk I/O and data storage on which data reside have clearly become "first class citizens" in the modern information world. In addition, parallelism is now ubiquitous in computing, from multi-core processors within a single enclosure to massively parallel I/O systems that span many racks of equipment.


Invited Speaker


Rob Ross is a computer scientist at the Argonne National Laboratory.

Rob's research interests are in system software for high performance computing systems, in particular parallel file systems and I/O and message passing libraries. He has been involved in Linux cluster computing since 1995, when he first tested PVFS on early Beowulf systems at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Clemson University in 2000. Following this he joined the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He was the lead architect of the PVFS parallel file system, is active in maintaining the ROMIO MPI-IO library, and oversees the Parallel netCDF high-level I/O library development. Rob is a member of the MPICH2 development team awarded the R&D 100 award in 2005, and was a recipient of the 2004 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
