Workshop on Cluster Storage Technology
Storage systems have an increasing importance for high performance computing. Real applications from e.g. physics, bioinformatics and climate research produce huge volumes of data that have to be managed efficiently.
The workshop concentrates on storage technologies where we follow the principle of clustering of resources. This already proved viable for providing CPU cycles and it is now extended to storage. However, the research field is still young and there are many open issues. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers in that field and to provide a platform for discussions and maybe common future cooperations and projects.
