While NAND flash memory is used in a variety of end-user devices, it has a few disadvantages, such as asymmetric speed of read and write operations, inability to in-place updates, among others. To overcome these problems, various flash-aware strategies have been suggested in terms of buffer cache, file system, FTL, and others. Also, the recent development(More)
Most mobile devices are equipped with a NAND flash memory even if it has characteristics of not-in-place update and asymmetric I/O latencies among read, write, and erase operations: write/erase operations are much slower than a read operation in a flash memory. For the overall performance of a flash memory system, the buffer replacement policy should(More)
In this paper, we present a virtual machine based SSD Simulator, VSSIM (Virtual SSD Simulator). VSSIM intends to address the issues of the trace driven simulation, e.g. trace re-scaling, accurate replay, etc. VSSIM operates on top of QEMU/KVM with software based SSD module. VSSIM runs in realtime and allows the user to measure both the host performance and(More)
In NAND Flash-based SSDs, deduplication can provide an effective resolution of three critical issues: cell lifetime, write performance, and garbage collection overhead. However, deduplication at SSD device level distinguishes itself from the one at enterprise storage systems in many aspects, whose success lies in proper exploitation of underlying very(More)
COMIB(COMposite Icon Browser) is a graphical user interface for retrieval of multimedia databases. It gives users the effect of browsing and navigating multimedia objects simultaneously in a screen using composite icons, that may be thumbnails of the several nested attribute values of those objects. Users can specify these attributes with a mouse while(More)
In this work, we studied the energy consumption characteristics of various SSD design parameters. We developed an accurate energy consumption model for SSDs that computes aggregate, as well as component-specific, energy consumption of SSDs in sub-msec time scale. In our study, we used five different FTLs (page mapping, DFTL, block mapping, and two different(More)
