    The Internet small computer systems interface (iSCSI) is a storage network technology that allows block-level access to storage devices, such as disks, over a computer network. Because iSCSI runs over the ubiquitous TCP/IP protocol, it has many advantages over proprietary alternatives. Due to the recent introduction of 10 gigabit Ethernet, storage vendors are interested in the benefits this large ... View full abstract»

  • On Maximizing iSCSI Throughput Using Multiple Connections with Automatic Parallelism Tuning

    In this paper, we propose an iSCSI-APT (iSCSI with automatic parallelism tuning) that maximizes iSCSI throughput in long-fat networks. In recent years, as a protocol for building SANs (Storage Area Networks), iSCSI has been attracting attention for its low cost and high compatibility with existing networking infrastructure. However, it has been known that iSCSI throughput degrades in a long-fat ne... View full abstract»

  • Pre-allocation Size Adjusting Methods Depending on Growing File Size

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):19 - 25
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (257 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We propose several pre-allocation size adjusting methods that can prevent the file fragmentation of files at arbitrary sizes depending on the growing file size. The proposed methods use small-size pre-allocation when the size of a growing file is relatively small and a large-size pre-allocation when the size of a growing file is large. We confirmed that the proposed methods effectively prevent not... View full abstract»

    There is a huge amount of duplicated or redundant data in current storage systems. So data de-duplication, which uses lossless data compression schemes to minimize the duplicated data at the inter-file level, has been receiving broad attention in recent years. But there are still research challenges in current approaches and storage systems, such as: how to chunking the files more efficiently and ... View full abstract»

  • Parallel Processing of Data, Metadata, and Aggregates within an Archival Storage System User Interface (Toward Archiving a Million Files and a Million Megabytes per Minute)

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):36 - 43
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (242 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Archiving large datasets requires parallel processing of both data and metadata for timely execution. This paper describes the work in progress to use various processing techniques, including multi-threading of data and metadata operations, distributed processing, aggregation, and conditional processing to achieve increased archival performance for large datasets.

    Computer networks are frequently used as a communication channel between applications and storage resources. The diversity of the architectures, communication protocols and user objectives induces vast research agenda. Both networks and storage systems have their models, used to analyze and optimize separately the two different aspects (transmission and storage) of information systems. On the othe...

  • A Partial-Distribution-Fault-Aware Protocol for Consistent Updates in Distributed Storage Systems

    Distribution of data and erasure tolerant-codes allow to store data reliably in distributed systems. Whereby most techniques are directed to failures of storage resources, also erroneously accessing clients and network interruptions may disturb the storage system operation and cause data loss. Particularly, updates that get partially effective onto distributed data may leave data in an inconsisten... View full abstract»

    Managing concurrency is a fundamental requirement for any multi-threaded system, frequently implemented by serializing critical code regions or using object locks on shared resources. Storage systems are one case of this, where multiple clients may wish to access or modify on-disk objects concurrently yet safely. Data consistency may be provided by an inter-client protocol, or it can be implemente... View full abstract»

    In this work, we develop novel disk characterization suite, DIG (disk geometry analyzer), which allows us to rapidly extract and to characterize the key performance metric of modern hard disk drive. Development of this tool is accompanied by thorough examination of four off-the-shelf hard disk drives. DIG consists of three key ingredients: O(1) track boundary detection algorithm,O (log n) zone bou... View full abstract»
