Abstract : The recent explosion in data sizes manipulated by distributed scientific applications has prompted the need to develop specialized storage systems capable to deal with specific access patterns in a scalable fashion. In this context, a large class of applications focuses on parallel array processing: small parts of huge multi-dimensional arrays are concurrently accessed by a large number of clients, both for reading and writing. A specialized storage system that deals with such an access pattern faces several challenges at the level of data/metadata management. We introduce Pyramid, an active array-oriented storage system that addresses these challenges and shows promising results in our initial evaluation.
