Integrating High Performance File Systems in a Cloud Computing Environment

In this paper, the authors outline their ongoing efforts to effectively integrate a parallel file system in a cloud environment. They investigate how a Parallel file System (PFS) can be effectively integrated and provided as a service to cloud users running High Performance Computing (HPC) applications, and what would be the performance and security implications of such a service. A critical requirement of running today's data-intensive HPC applications is the availability of a parallel high performance storage system.
