Efficient management for large-scale flash-memory storage systems with resource conservation
Li-Pin Chang, Tei-Wei Kuo
Pages: 381-418
DOI: 10.1145/1111609.1111610
Many existing approaches on flash-memory management are based on RAM-resident tables in which one single granularity size is used for both address translation and space management. As high-capacity flash memory is becoming more affordable than ever,...

Scalable and fault-tolerant support for variable bit-rate data in the exedra streaming server
Stergios V. Anastasiadis, Kenneth C. Sevcik, Michael Stumm
Pages: 419-456
DOI: 10.1145/1111609.1111611
We describe the design and implementation of the Exedra continuous media server, and experimentally evaluate alternative resource management policies using a prototype system that we built. Exedra has been designed to provide scalable and efficient...

Triage: Performance differentiation for storage systems using adaptive control
Magnus Karlsson, Christos Karamanolis, Xiaoyun Zhu
Pages: 457-480
DOI: 10.1145/1111609.1111612
Ensuring performance isolation and differentiation among workloads that share a storage infrastructure is a basic requirement in consolidated data centers. Existing management tools rely on resource provisioning to meet performance goals; they...
