Today’s scientific applications can run on hundreds of thousands of processors and produce massive amounts of data. To meet such requirements, high-performance computing (HPC) systems have grown in size and complexity, incorporating data analysis in addition to computational modeling. In this context, an important key to high performance is data management, which includes not only I/O but also analysis of data in situ in order to obtain scientific insight.
