Learn about three upcoming HDF5 features in different stages of development that we are planning to add to HDF5 library in the next two years. This webinar is scheduled for Friday, October 25, at 11:00 a.m. CDT.
First, we will start with two demos on enhancements to Single Writer/Multiple Reader (SWMR) VFD and new “Splitter” and “Mirror” Virtual File Drivers (VFD). Current SWMR doesn’t allow modifications of the file structure while adding new data. Only raw data can be added to the HDF5 file under construction. We redesigned our approach to SWMR and will demonstrate new implementation that allows to add and delete HDF5 objects such as groups, datasets and attributes while writing the to the HDF5 file. Also, the HDF5 library can guarantee for the maximum time from write to availability of data for read.
“Splitter” VFD and “Mirror” VFDs allow simultaneous creation of HDF5 files on local and remote systems. Created files can be accessed in SWMR mode. The features are in a well-developed prototype stage and we are looking for very friendly users to try these VFDs and give us feedback.
We will conclude the Webinar with discussion of the third upcoming development, a new HDF5 storage method for sparse storage that we have been designing and prototyping.
