An adaptive write buffer management scheme for flash-based SSDs
Guanying Wu, Xubin He, Ben Eckart
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2093139.2093140

Solid State Drives (SSD's) have shown promise to be a candidate to replace traditional hard disk drives. The benefits of SSD's over HDD's include better durability, higher performance, and lower power consumption, but due to certain physical...

Efficient software implementations of large finite fields GF(2n) for secure storage applications
Jianqiang Luo, Kevin D. Bowers, Alina Oprea, Lihao Xu
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2093139.2093141

Finite fields are widely used in constructing error-correcting codes and cryptographic algorithms. In practice, error-correcting codes use small finite fields to achieve high-throughput encoding and decoding. Conversely, cryptographic systems...

A caching-oriented management design for the performance enhancement of solid-state drives
Yuan-Hao Chang, Cheng-Kang Hsieh, Po-Chun Huang, Pi-Cheng Hsiu
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2093139.2093142

While solid-state drives are excellent alternatives to hard disks in mobile devices, a number of performance and reliability issues need to be addressed. In this work, we design an efficient flash management scheme for the performance improvement...

HPDA: A hybrid parity-based disk array for enhanced performance and reliability
Bo Mao, Hong Jiang, Suzhen Wu, Lei Tian, Dan Feng, Jianxi Chen, Lingfang Zeng
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2093139.2093143

Flash-based Solid State Drive (SSD) has been productively shipped and deployed in large scale storage systems. However, a single flash-based SSD cannot satisfy the capacity, performance and reliability requirements of the modern storage systems...
