Welcome to KvikIO’s Python documentation!

KvikIO is a Python and C++ library for high performance file IO. It provides C++ and Python bindings to cuFile, which enables GPUDirect Storage (GDS). KvikIO also works efficiently when GDS isn’t available and can read/write both host and device data seamlessly.

KvikIO is a part of the RAPIDS suite of open-source software libraries for GPU-accelerated data science.


This is the documentation for the Python library. For the C++ documentation, see under libkvikio.
