Newswise: BP Looks to ORNL, ADIOS to Help Rein in Data

BP Looks to ORNL, ADIOS to Help Rein in Data

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

British Petroleum researchers invited ORNL data scientists to give the company’s high-performance computing team a tutorial of the laboratory’s ADIOS I/O middleware. ADIOS has helped researchers achieve scientific breakthroughs by providing a simple, flexible way to describe data in their code that may need to be written, read, or processed outside of the running simulation. ORNL researchers Scott Klasky and Norbert Podhorszki demonstrated how it could help the BP team accelerate their science by helping tackle their large, unique seismic datasets.
