It is part of The HDF Group's mission to "help people understand HDF and make effective use of its capabilities, to ensure long-term access to HDF data, and to advance the state of the art in data management". However, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. This is a retrospective on what we, The HDF Group and a few daredevils (science teams), have learned about the use of parallel HDF5 in the "real world" (Blue Waters).
