—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)

—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)
In this work, we perform µsec time scale analysis on energy consumption behavior of the SSD Write operation and exploit this information to extract key technical characteristics of SSD internals: channel utilization policy, page allocation strategy, cluster size, channel switch delay , way switch delay, etc. We found that some SSDs adopt a multi-page(More)
Encoded video streams present numerous problems in bandwidth allocation, multi-plexing and admission control as a result of their Variable Bit Rate(VBR) characteristics. In particular, since video signals show a large range of variability, peak rate allocation results in very low bandwidth utilization. However, other allocation schemes tend to cause cell(More)
—The design of an end-to-end Internet congestion control protocol that could achieve high utilization, fair sharing of bottleneck bandwidth, and fast convergence while remaining TCP-friendly is an ongoing challenge that continues to attract considerable research attention. This paper presents ACP, an Adaptive end-to-end Congestion control Protocol that(More)
