The ISA of Modern Storage Systems: Interface, Specialization and Approaches



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 performance and efficiency requirements, the entire storage hardware and software stack need 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 data access Interface, architecture Specialization, and development Approaches (ISA) of storage systems respectively, and discuss how they will reshape the storage ecosystem.
