Abstract:   “A supercomputer is a device for turning compute-bound problems into I/O-bound problems” a famous quote from Seymour Cray envisions the fundamental shift in bottlenecks a supercomputers gain more parallelism at exponential rates, the storage infrastructure performance is increasing at a significant lower rate. As we are moving forward from petascale to exascale computing, pushing compute and network technologies to the next extreme, the lower performance development of storage system implies an outstanding impediment to practical use of exascale machines in the future. Nowadays, in such physical constrains there are many great advances in HPC file systems to handle peta-scale datasets. Yet, in facing the exascale and beyond the challenges are formidable. This special session is planned by inviting different leaderships in the file system field to provide various perspectives of possible solutions to the challenges.
