2004 StorCloud Challenge Winners
Congratulations the following winners of the 2004 StorCloud Challenge:
Best Random Access Use of StorCloud
The winner is Blockbuster, Lawrence Livermore National Labs
This category represents a class of applications that access the storage subsystem in a random fashion as opposed to purely sequential access pattern. Random access patterns generally stress a storage subsystem far more severely than sequential access patterns.
Best Use of StorCloud to Advance a Scientific Application
The winner is MPQC, Sandia National Labs
This category represents an application that gained significant benefit and/or growth from the use of the StorCloud storage system.
Most Innovative Use of StorCloud
The winner is PNNL Active Storage
This category is given to the group that demonstrates a novel use of the StorCloud storage system that goes well beyond simply transferring data between the application and the storage devices in StorCloud.
Highest Achieved StorCloud Bandwidth and I/Os per second
The winner is ENZO, San Diego Supercomputing Center
This award represents the highest bandwidth and I/O operations per second achieved between the application and the StorCloud storage subsystem used during the run.
