The coming together of Exascale Computing and Big Data is posing new challenges to storage and I/O systems. The new class of BDEC , or Big Data Extreme Computing systems need to address both simulation I/O and massive external data sets being introduced as part of simulation workflows. Existing Big Data technologies and infrastructures are not suited for dealing with the deluge of data that is well exemplified in near future scientific instruments. Existing file system and Object Storage Technologies are plagued by reliability and scalability problems even though, for the time being, these Object Storage solutions can address some of the drawbacks of Parallel File Systems.

In this talk we look at the critical requirements in the design of a new generation of Exascale/Exabyte class storage systems for these new use cases. We will also address some of the opportunities in exploiting, and drawbacks in using incumbent Object Storage Technologies and Exascale oriented I/O stacks. 

Key Terms: Exascale, Exascale I/O, BDEC, Object Storage, Parallel File Systems
