We’re excited to share the work that was recently released at the presitgious USENIX FAST ’15  conference. Carl Waldspurger presented “Efficient MRC Construction with SHARDS,” a paper that he coauthored with other CloudPhysics technologists Nohhyun Park, Alexander Garthwaite, and me. Click below view the talk (video length is 25 minutes).

For those that prefer a quick synopsis of this exploration of our storage cache analysis:

Caches are pervasive in modern storage systems.

Designed to accelerate data access by exploiting locality, a cache provides an essential service in modern computing. Operating systems and databases maintain in-memory buffer caches containing hot blocks. Here, a hot block is one that is considered likely to be reused. Storage cache using flash memory are popular as a cost-effective way to reduce application latency and offload work from rotating disks. This has recently been a trend both in networked as well as server-side storage. Today, virtually all storage devices — ranging from individual disk drives to large storage arrays — include significant caches composed of RAM or flash memory.
