Include the result in the IO-500 ranked listCheck if you prefer to not include your result in the main ranked list. Your result will still appear in the full list.
Include the result in the 10 Node Challenge ranked listOnly applicable when using 10 nodes; shall we publish the results in the 10 node challenge sublist.
InstitutionThe abbreviation of the institution
Name of the systemThe name of the supercomputer which run the IO-500, if you use multiple systems concurrently, come up with a proper name
System classificationA production system provides services (e.g., in computational science) to end-users while a research system serves the purpose to research in computer science itself like novel system and storage architectures and is typically not open to end-users conducting computational science.
Storage install dateWhen was the storage installed; format: MM/YYYY
Storage refresh dateThe most recent date when the storage system underwent significant changes such as reformat or growth. format: MM/YYYY
