Contemporary disk arrays consist purely of hard disk drives, which normally provide huge storage capacities with low-cost and high-throughput for data-intensive applications. Nevertheless, they have some inhenrent disadvantages such as long access latencies, high annual disk replacement rates, fragile physical characteristics, and energy-inefficiency due to their build-in mechanical and electronic mechanisms. Flash-memory based solid state disks, on the other hand, although currently more expensive and inadequate in write cycles, offer much faster aread accesses and are much more robust and energy efficient. To combine the complementary merits of hard disks and flash disks, in this paper we propose a hybrid disk array architecture named HIT (hybrid disk storage) for data-intensive applications. Next, a dynamic data redistribution strategy called PEARL (performance, energy, and reliability balanced), which can periodically redistribute data between flash and hard disks to adapt to the changing data access patterns, is developed on top of the HIT architecture.
