ESiWACE participated in Supercomputing Conference 2016 (SC16) in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Here, a strategy of modeling and simulation of tape libraries (poster, pdf) were presented, which allows exploration of new HPC storage concepts of the weather and climate community (see work package 4 of ESiWACE (pdf)).

Also, check out our middleware for earth system data (short paper, pdf) presented at the First International Workshop on Parallel Data Storage and Data Intensive Scalable Computing Systems, held in conjunction with SC16.
