Michio is going to e-visit ACSL on the 11th of Feb.
Here’s his talk:
Designing storage stacks for distributed, heterogeneous systems
Storage software stacks are ubiquitous in computing systems. They are either embedded in individual hosts or disaggregated into a pool of servers or even dedicated racks. Although the performance of many storage systems has been largely constrained by slow disk devices, modern storage devices, such as NVMe SSDs and persistent memory, exhibit software overhead that impacts end-to-end performance. This talk introduces several instances in this problem space, and discusses solutions based on emerging opportunities.
