Introduction to the special issue USENIX FAST 2012

Introduction to the special issue USENIX FAST 2012 Introduction to the Special Issue USENIX FAST 2012 12 We are pleased to present this special issue of ACM Transactions on Storage, which contains some of the best work presented at the 10th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST 2012). FAST is the premiere conference for publishing research results in the area of file and storage systems. The program committee received a record 137 submissions and selected 26 of these to appear at the conference held in February, 2012 in San Jose, California. After the conference, we invited the top few of these papers to submit an extended article to appear in this special issue. Papers at the conference covered a wide breadth of topics, and the articles in this special issue reflect that diversity. The first article, "WAN Optimized Replication of Backup Datasets Using Stream-Informed Delta Compression" by Shilane et al., explores how deduplication can be combined with delta compression to replicate data offsite. The ideas described in this article have been included in EMC Data Domain systems, resulting in substantial compression improvements for customers. The next article, "Revisiting Storage for Smartphones" by Kim et al., contradicts established "wisdom" by showing that storage is often a substantial bottleneck for applications running on smartphones. The authors identify several reasons for poor mobile storage performance, and they propose several potential improvements. The final article, "Recon: Verifying File System Consistency at Runtime" by Fryer et al., tackles the challenging and important problem of protecting file system metadata from software bugs. Recon checks per-transaction invariants before committing data to disk in order to preserve file system integrity.

Abstract

Introduction to the Special Issue USENIX FAST 2012 12 We are pleased to present this special issue of ACM Transactions on Storage, which contains some of the best work presented at the 10th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST 2012). FAST is the premiere conference for publishing research results in the area of file and storage systems. The program committee received a record 137 submissions and selected 26 of these to appear at the conference held in February, 2012 in San Jose, California. After the conference, we invited the top few of these papers to submit an extended article to appear in this special issue. Papers at the conference covered a wide breadth of topics, and the articles in this special issue reflect that diversity. The first article, "WAN Optimized Replication of Backup Datasets Using Stream-Informed Delta Compression" by Shilane et al., explores how deduplication can be combined with delta compression to replicate data offsite. The ideas described in this article have been included in EMC Data Domain systems, resulting in substantial compression improvements for customers. The next article, "Revisiting Storage for Smartphones" by Kim et al., contradicts established "wisdom" by showing that storage is often a substantial bottleneck for applications running on smartphones. The authors identify several reasons for poor mobile storage performance, and they propose several potential improvements. The final article, "Recon: Verifying File System Consistency at Runtime" by Fryer et al., tackles the challenging and important problem of protecting file system metadata from software bugs.
