Efficient management for large-scale flash-memory storage systems with resource conservation
Li-Pin Chang, Tei-Wei Kuo
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, Michael Stumm, Kenneth C. Sevcik
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
Christos Karamanolis, Xiaoyun Zhu, Magnus Karlsson
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...
