      High Performance Mass Storage and Parallel I/O: Technologies and Applications

      A Joint Publication of the: IEEE and Wiley Press

      Edited by: Hai Jin, Toni Cortes, Rajkumar Buyya

      Foreword by: David Patterson, University of California @ Berkeley

      Today’s data-driven high performance computer technologies demand reliable delivery
      systems that combine high-level computing, storage, I/O, and network communication
      performance. Due to the growth of Internet-driven applications like digital libraries,
      virtual laboratories, video on demand, e-commerce, web services, and collaborative
      systems, issues such as storage capacity and access speed have become critical in the
      design of today's computer systems.

      High Performance Mass Storage and Parallel I/O fills the need for a readily accessible
      single reference source on the subject of high-performance, large scale storage and
      delivery systems, specifically the use of Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID)
      that are accessed using parallel input/output (I/O) architecture. The authors, all
      internationally recognized experts in the field, have combined the best of the current
      literature on the subject with important information on emerging technologies and future

      Topics covered include:

      * Redundant Disk Array Architectures
      * Fault Tolerance Issues in Disk Arrays
      * Caching and Prefetching
      * Parallel File Systems
      * Parallel I/O Systems
      * Parallel I/O Programming Paradigms
      * Parallel I/O Applications and Environments
      * Emerging Technologies and Future Trends

      A valuable resource for both students and computer technology and professionals in the
      field, High Performance Mass Storage and Parallel I/O delivers state-of-the-art
      information that will help today’s system designers and application developers meet the
      increasing demand for high-performance, large-scale storage systems.
