Papers from Fast ’08
Storage Mojo points out the following paper:
Which I have to admit, is pretty cool.
…is a distributed network of intelligent, disk-based, storage appliances that stores data reliably and energy-efﬁciently. While existing MAID systems keep disks idle to save energy, Pergamum adds NVRAM at each node to store data signa- tures, metadata, and other small items, allowing deferred writes, metadata requests and inter-disk data veriﬁcation to be performed while the disk is powered off.
What I found cooler though is that all the papers are online.
Which I took the liberty of mirroring in case this was an error. :)
Speaking of which, I haven’t had time to fully review of the WSDM papers yet. Ug.
