PROPOSAL

NVMe SSDs are not a uniform class of devices. IO software stack is not uniform either. Understanding the performance characteristics of new-generation SSDs and the impact of the IO stack on their performance is crucial while determining how to design data-intensive systems. In this project, we would like to characterize the performance of a range of NVMe SSDs (e.g., Samsung Z-SSD, Intel Optane, …

PROPOSAL

Disaggregated storage has gained acceptance in data centers. With disaggregated storage, storage resources are decoupled from compute resources, and made available through fabric. We are particularly interested in storage resources composed of an ARM-based smartNIC, which acts as fabric target as well as storage controller for a collection of SSDs. The performance characteristics of the storage …

PROPOSAL

SSDs are not a uniform class of devices. SSD landscape is quite diverse now with many new-gen much faster / customizable devices being available. Understand their performance characteristics is crucial while determining what their impact on data systems software stack should be. In this project, we would like to characterize the performance of a broad range of such SSDs (e.g., ZNS, Samsung Z-SSD, …

PROPOSAL

Field Programmable Gate Arrays are now an integral part of public cloud infrastructures. You can for example run customized FPGA instances on AWS. A project focuses on FPGA-based hardware acceleration at the level of an SSD Flash Translation Layer, at the level of a Database storage manager or at the level of the database client. You will be able to experiment with FPGAs in the lab and on AWS. We …
