Test Results of the EuroStore Mass Storage System

Ingo Augustin

Speaker: Ingo Augustin

  A European consortium formed by science and industrial partners have started the EuroStore project to develop a prototype of a Hierarchical Storage Management System (HSM) together with a high performance parallel file system (PFS). The EuroStore project aims to design and develop a high performance file store. It will combine the features of a Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) with the performance of a parallel file system to provide a system capable of meeting the requirements of the most demanding applications in industry, commerce, and science. The few existing HSM and parallel file system products do not fully address all the needs of the user community, and, in some cases, represent a major investment that users are not willing to undertake. EuroStore is an European Union Esprit IV project, with the following participating institutions: QSW (supercomputer manufacturer, UK), DESY, CERN, HCSA (space applications, Greece), AMC (medical, Greece), HNMS (meteorological, Greece) and Tera (medical, Italy) The first two parties are the development sites for the PFS and the HSM respectively. The other participants provided their requirements as input and tested the prototype accordingly. The first prototype has been deployed at CERN, where it has been intensively assessed. The results of the tests will be presented, and future developments will be discussed.
