RSVP handout

Building on  the  early successes  of the ADIOS   framework,  the   design   and  realization   of   the  our envisioned  process  flows   will  be  done  in  coordination   with strategically   important   applications,   i.e.,   materials   science, seismology, and  fusion, each chosen  to advance certain  process flow technologies.  The desired outcome of the  RSVP  project and  this coordinated  effort  is  a service-oriented-architecture (SOA), called  the eXtreme Scale  Service Architecture (XSSA), that permits scientists to retain  control over the flow of data  and data transformations/analysis,  while allowing  them  to  abstract away the  extraneous  complexity and implementation  details  of the data management.
