SNAPI 2010


6th IEEE International Workshop on Storage Network Architecture and Parallel I/Os
May 3, 2010

In conjunction with the 26th IEEE Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST 2010)

Lake Tahoe Incline Village, NV May 3rd, 2010




The tremendous need for storage capacity and I/O performance has become a critical factor 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. SNAPI 2010 brings together experts from academia and industry to discuss cutting edge research on parallel and distributed data storage technologies, storage interconnects, and storage management.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

 Caching and consistency

 Data archiving

 Data protection and recovery

 Distributed metadata management

 Evaluation of networked storage architectures

 File systems, object-based storage, block-level storage

 Integration of storage and computation

 NAS and SAN architectures

 Networked storage manageability, reliability, and availability

 Networked storage performance and scalability

 Parallel I/O architectures

 Solid Storage Architectures

 Storage management systems

 Storage networking: e.g. Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, IP Storage, iSCSI
