iSCSI is a network storage technology designed to provide an economical solution over a TCP/IP Network. This paper presents a new iSCSI design with multiple TCP/IP connections. The prototype is developed and experiments are conducted for performance evaluation on Gigabit Ethernet (GE). Test results show that the new iSCSI design improves performance 20%~60%(More)
In large distributed Object-based Storage Systems, the performance, availability and scalability of the Metadata Server (MDS) cluster are critical. Traditional MDS cluster suffers from frequent metadata access and metadata movement within the cluster. In this paper, we present a new method called Hashing Partition (HAP) for MDS cluster design to avoid these(More)
—In datacenter network (DCN) research, one key challenge is to reproduce the relative performances of different scalable DCN architectures in an unbiased and transparent way. Adequately addressing this challenge will support the validation of performance studies, and this is fundamental to building a strong research foundation and making wise datacenter(More)
