Welcome to SMASH’s home page!
SMASH is a joint initiative by the DBSE and ParCIO groups at Otto-von-Guericke-Universitat, and it also is part of DFG Priority Program 2377. The core objective of the project is to investigate the benefits of a common storage engine that manages a heterogeneous storage landscape, including traditional storage devices and non-volatile memory technologies.
It aims to provide a prototypical standalone software library to be used by third-party projects. Common high-performance computing (HPC) workflows will be supported through the integration of SMASH into the existing JULEA storage framework, while database systems can use the interface of SMASH directly whenever data is stored or accessed.
