Fast Concurrent Access to Parallel Disks


Abstract. High performance applications involving large data sets require the efficient and flexible use of multiple disks. In an external memory machine with D parallel, independent disks, only one block can be accessed on each disk in one I/ O step. This restriction leads to a load balancing problem that is perhaps the main inhibitor for the efficient… (More)
