Abstract: 

The unique challenges in the field of nuclear high energy physics are already pushing the limits of today’s storage solutions, however, the projects planned for the next ten years call for storage capacities, performance and access patterns that challenge the limits of many of today’s solutions.

This talk will present the limitations in network and storage and explain the architectures considered for tomorrow’s storage implementations in this field. Tests of various file systems (Lustre, NFS, Block Object storage, GPFS ..) and network links (100G, 40G, 25G) have been performed and the results of performance measurements for different hardware solutions and access patterns will be presented.
