Title: The ISA of Modern Storage Systems: Interface, Specialization, and Approach
Storage systems today have been built into a complicated ecosystem, which involves the development and deployment of storage devices, storage software, and application-level data stores. To rapidly meet the ever-increasing storage performance and efficiency requirements, the entire storage hardware and software stack needs to adapt instantly in a coordinated fashion. This drives us to rethink the design and implementation approaches to building future storage systems. In this talk, I will present our recent studies on the perspectives of Interface, Specialization, and Approach (ISA) of storage systems respectively, and discuss how they could reshape the future storage ecosystem.
