The main goal of this project is to improve the performance and energy efficiency of I/O (Input/Output) operations of large-scale cluster computing platforms.

The major activities include:

1) characterize the memory access workloads;
2) investigate the new and emerging new storage and memory devices, such as SSD and PCM, on I/O performance.
(3) study energy-efficient buffer and cache replacement algorithms,
(4) leveraging SSD as a new caching device to improve the energy efficiency and performance of I/O performance
