Burst Buffer Early User Program


Table of Contents 


We welcome you to the Burst Buffer early users program. Currently, there have been approved 9 applications for Burst Buffer early access. This program is designed from KAUST Supercomputing Laboratory, and George Markomanolis leads the Burst Buffer work at KAUST. For any questions/issues, send an email to georgios.markomanolis@kaust.edu.sa. Moreover, there is a mailing list that you could join if you are interested.
