Modern storage systems are facing an important challenge of making the best use of fast storage devices. Even though the underlying storage devices are being enhanced, the traditional storage stack falls short of utilizing the enhanced characteristics, as it has been optimized specifically for hard disk drives. In this article, we optimize the storage stack to maximize the benefit of low latency that fast storage devices provide. Our approach is to simplify the I/O path from application to the… CONTINUE READING
