Abstract:

There exist two main problems of storage organization models in current large-scale file systems, i.e., massive data and heterogeneous devices. The scalability and performance optimization become challenging. In order to address these two problems, this project proposes correlation-aware based model in hybrid storage organization. The basic idea is to use locality-sensitive hashing computation to obtain fast and accurate aggregation for correlated data. Many file operations (e.g., read/write/update) can be executed in sequence. The performance of SSD can be significantly improved with the decrements of erasing times. This can also improve the interface between systems and users to facilitate the expression from users' requests to system operations. The correlation-aware design allows high-level applications to know the data layout and access patterns, to further improve the storage efficiency for massive data and the utilization of heterogeneous devices. The aggregation based multi-version update method can improve system reliability. The research work has some previous basis and can be implemented and tested in massive storage environments.
