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)
As more and more data are generated in an electronic format, the necessity of data recovery service became larger and the development of more efficient data backup and recovery technology has been an important issue during the past decade. While lots of effective backup and recovery technologies, including data dedeplication and incremental backup, have(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 cluster(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)
This article presents Athanasia, a user-transparent and fault-tolerant system, for parallel applications running on large-scale cluster systems. Cluster systems have been regarded as a de facto standard to achieve multitera-flop computing power. These cluster systems, as we know, have an inherent failure factor that can cause computation failure. The(More)
