Storage

View this topic in
A special type of resource that stores information coming from other resources and provides information about physical entities. They may also include services to process the information stored by the resource. As storages are resources, they can be deployed either on a device or in the network. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Enabling high-density energy storage: Design characteristics of Thermal Matrix Energy Storage and a highly conductive gas mixture

    Thermal Matrix Energy Storage (TMES) is a rapidly emerging, environmentally attractive, and scalable option for economical bulk energy storage. Its tremendous scalability readily enables commercial- to utility-scale management and balancing of highly variable generation and load. Scalability combined with TMES peak operating temperatures of 1,250 to 2,500 Kelvin make this heat- based storage technology unique in reaching high energy densities. Promising storage applications include high temperature industrial processes and large scale electrical energy storage. TMES is further poised to play a critical role in the new field of coal- and gas-fired generating plant recycling, enabling cost-effective transformation of high air-pollution power producing facilities into grid-scale green energy storage operations, supporting high- penetrations of renewable wind and solar power generation. Research has focused on meeting stringent green targets while ensuring that costs are driven out of the design without sacrificing safety, product life, and reliability. A key part of this development, a high heat transfer gas mixture with low aerodynamic loading is proposed, and controlled test results against known gases and interaction with graphite are presented. Behavior is examined through several test fixtures specifically designed to provide critical heat transport characteristics and performance for a range of temperatures and pressures. Additional detail presented includes TMES chamber design, insulation design, and expected longevity.

    In this paper, we consider the design of a dynamic storage resource management framework for the grid. The framework is service-oriented and conforms to the Open Grid Service Infrastructure (OGSI) specifications. The higher-level framework design is inspired by the grid and the peer-to-peer network architecture, which have been proven to be very effective in distributed environments. The design guarantees a robust way of maintaining the storage resources as it does not rely on any supporting infrastructure. In our design, we included QoS performance metrics as part of our service interface to cater for high-performance grid applications. At the lower level, we consider the usage of Storage Management Initiative Specifications (SMI-S), which enhance the flexibility and management of heterogeneous storage systems/devices, of various vendors.

  • A 30 terabyte mass storage architecture

    A description is given of a system that contains the online storage of approximately 15 million patents or 30 Tbytes of data. Magnetic disk storage is used on an IBM plug-compatible mainframe to store the indices. Optical storage which offers the best cost/performance ratio, is used to store the images of the patents. Two types of optical storage devices are used: the removable optical disk and the jukebox. Removable optical disks have a relatively fast access time and therefore they are used to store the most frequently accessed patents. The jukeboxes have a relatively slow access time and are used to store the remainder of the patents. Both the removable optical disks and the jukeboxes are controlled by Unix supermicrocomputers such as the SUN-3. The intelligent controllers contain cache magnetic storage for matching the data transfer speed of the optical drives with the network. All of the removable optical disks and jukeboxes are connected together using packet- switching digital switches which offer an off-the-shelf IEEE 802.3 network with guaranteed end-to-end throughput.<<ETX>>

  • Overview of the removable-media mass storage market

    The market for removable-media mass storage devices is driven by mushrooming memory requirements for imaging, CAD/CAM, and archiving applications. The diverse products serving these needs will slash as users and integrators weigh performance requirements, functionality, and costs, according to Mass Storage Outlook, a market analysis published by Freeman Associates, Inc., (1993). The authors analyzed seven categories of tape libraries and six categories of optical-disk libraries to determine the key trends and issues in this dynamic market.<<ETX>>

  • Magnetic storage technology-the 1990s-evolution or revolution?

    Summary form only given. The rate of progress in disk drive technology, as measured by the increase in areal density, has been advancing at somewhat better than a 60-percent compound growth rate (CGR), starting with this decade, in comparison with the historic CGR of nearly 32 percent over the previous 40 years. If we look at the CGR of areal density over relatively shorter time periods, we find that in the 1950s and early 1960s, a CGR of as high as 90 percent was reached. This CGR is not surprising for the introductory phase of a technology being exploited for data storage for the first time. Based on the extrapolation of the historic rate, we would have anticipated products with densities of 1 to 2 gigabits per square inch shipping in 1998. However, if the current 60-percent growth rate is sustained, we should see the availability of drives in the 10-gigabits-per-square-inch range by the year 2000. This dramatic difference in projected storage densities carries profound implications on the use of storage devices, the applications that will be developed, and the form that the devices take. This tutorial covers the current status of magnetic storage technology and future trends, highlighting the as yet untapped potential for further advances.<<ETX>>

  • Accelerating Storage System Performances with NVRAM Cache by Considering Storage Access Characteristics

    NVRAM is being considered as an additional memory/storage component of future computer systems. This paper investigates how much performance gain can be obtained if we add NVRAM as the memory/storage component of computer systems. Specifically, we present a storage system accelerator that utilizes a small size of NVRAM cache. To do so, we formally define the NVRAM caching problem and analyze the storage access patterns that can be exploited in managing NVRAM cache. Our analysis shows that there are more than 40% of single-write data in storage I/Os due to periodic flushes triggered from the host side. Based on this observation, we show that acceleration of storage performance can be maximized by using NVRAM as a selective storage cache device. Empirical evaluation results show that our storage architecture with flush-aware NVRAM cache reduces the total I/O time by 26% on average and up to 62% compared to the case that does not use our scheme.
