Petrel: A Programmatically Accessible Research Data Service
TimeWednesday, July 312pm - 2:30pm
DescriptionWe report on our experiences deploying and operating Petrel,
a data service designed to support science projects
that must organize and distribute large quantities of data.
Building on a high-performance 3.2 PB parallel file system and
embedded in Argonne National Laboratory's 100+ Gbps network fabric, Petrel
leverages Science DMZ concepts and Globus APIs
to provide application scientists with a high-speed,
highly connected, and programmatically controllable data store.
We describe Petrel's design, implementation, and usage and give
representative examples to illustrate the many different ways in which
scientists have employed the system.
