Efficient Use of Low Cost SSDs for Cost Effective Solid State Caches

Conventional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) and emerging Solid State Drives (SSDs) each has strengths and limitations in terms of latency, price, and lifetime. To mitigate the limitations and amplify their advantages, the Solid State Cache (SSCs), which use flash based SSD as a data cache, have been introduced in previous studies [4, 5]. These studies have focused… CONTINUE READING
