Modern storage technology (solid-state disks (SSDs), NoSQL databases, commoditized RAID hardware, etc.) brings new reliability challenges to the already-complicated storage stack. Among other things, the behavior of these new components during...
The IX Operating System: Combining Low Latency, High Throughput, and Efficiency in a Protected Dataplane
Adam Belay, George Prekas, Mia Primorac, Ana Klimovic, Samuel Grossman, Christos Kozyrakis, Edouard Bugnion
Article No.: 11
The conventional wisdom is that aggressive networking requirements, such as high packet rates for small messages and μs-scale tail latency, are best addressed outside the kernel, in a user-level networking stack. We present
Computational Sprinting: Architecture, Dynamics, and Strategies
Seyed Majid Zahedi, Songchun Fan, Matthew Faw, Elijah Cole, Benjamin C. Lee
Article No.: 12
Computational sprinting is a class of mechanisms that boost performance but dissipate additional power. We describe a sprinting architecture in which many, independent chip multiprocessors share a power supply and sprints are constrained by the...
