Description: Datasets up to terabyte size and petabyte capacities have created a serious imbalance between I/O and storage system performance and system functionality. One promising approach is the use of parallel data transfer techniques for client access to storage, peripheral-to-peripheral transfers, and remote file transfers. This paper describes the parallel I/O architecture and mechanisms, Parallel Transport Protocol (PTP), parallel FTP, and parallel client Application Programming Interface (API) used by the High Performance Storage System (HPSS). Parallel storage integration issues with a local parallel file system are also discussed.
