Storage System Performance Characteristics

Supervisor: Philippe Bonnet
Semester: Fall 2019

New forms of Solid State Drives have interesting characteristics in terms of performance (10 to 100x faster than previous generations of SSDs) and in terms of functionalities (SSDs can now suspend the execution of writes or erase operations to minimize read latency). The performance characteristics of these devices is not well understood yet. The topic of this thesis is to design and conduct experiments to fully characterize the performance of such SSDs.
