        Distributed data management at JGI 15m

        The DOE Joint Genome Institute is a user facility that generates genome sequence data and analysis products for the environmental research community. I’m an effort to be more resilient to outages, JGI has recently shifted to a distributed computing model. I will briefly describe our hierarchical data management system that complements our centralized workflow system.

        Data Context and Sharded Data - Erasure Coding for HDD Computational Storage 15m

        Discussion of the need for data context at the storage device to perform data layout aware computations on the device. An example of structured data stored via an erasure coded data availability scheme and how it destroys data context at the device. Possible solutions are described.
