Ma & Freeh Receive NSF Award for Multi-disciplinary Research Effort

Drs. Xiaosong Ma and Vince Freeh have teamed with Dr. John Blondin (Physics) and received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) of $266,002 for their multi-disciplinary research proposal titled “Application-adaptive I/O Stack for Data-intensive Scientific Computing. 
The award will run from August 15, 2006 through August 14, 2009.
Research Abstract - In this proposal, we address the I/O stack performance problem with adaptive optimizations at multiple layers of the HEC I/O stack (from high-level scientific data libraries to secondary storage devices and archiving systems), and propose effective communication schemes to integrate such optimizations across layers. Our proposed PATIO (Parallel AdapTive I/O) framework will coordinate storage resources ranging from processors to tape archiving systems.
