Biographical Sketch

Tina Butler is responsible for evaluating and recommending the direction and implementation of technology at NERSC, as well as performing ongoing system administration and support for the center's systems. Over the last 20 years, she held a variety of systems and applications programming and support positions in high performance and technical computing at DOE, DOD, NASA, and US EPA installations. She also acted as chief technologist at US EPA's National Environmental Supercomputing Center. Tina earned a B.A. in Anthropology at Northwestern University.

"Storage 2020: A Vision for the Future of HPC Storage", October 20, 2017, LBNL LBNL-2001072,

As the DOE Office of Science's mission computing facility, NERSC will follow this roadmap and deploy these new storage technologies to continue delivering storage resources that meet the needs of its broad user community. NERSC's diversity of workflows encompass significant portions of open science workloads as well, and the findings presented in this report are also intended to be a blueprint for how the evolving storage landscape can be best utilized by the greater HPC community. Executing the strategy presented here will ensure that emerging I/O technologies will be both applicable to and effective in enabling scientific discovery through extreme-scale simulation and data analysis in the coming decade.
