Abstract : Parallel applications running on clusters require both high-performance communications between nodes and efficient access to the storage system. We propose to improve the performance of distributed storage systems in clusters by efficiently using the underlying high-performance network to access distant storage systems. We show that storage requirements are very different from those of parallel computation and that a modification of the network programming interface is required. We detail several propositions for these interfaces which make their utilization easier in the context of distributed storage. Performance evaluations show that their integration makes it easy to use and very efficient in the context of storage.
