ViPIOS: The Vienna Parallel Input/Output System
In this paper we present the Vienna Parallel Input Output System (ViPIOS), a novel approach to enhance the I/O performance of high performance applications. It is a client-server based tool combining capabilities found in parallel I/O runtime libraries and parallel file systems.
