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.
