    Traditional storage systems interfaces, including POSIX file I/O and block-based interfaces have been a major success. They are easy to understand and use and their decades-long rule have prevented vendor lock-in and encouraged innovation across common interfaces. However, HPC and cloud systems are pushing their scalability, and behind their veneer of simplicity, idiosyncratic "magic" numbers are lurking, destroying performance if applications fail to discover and properly tend to them. Traditionally, these pressures have been addressed by three ways of developing new storage... Read More

    We consider a... Read More
