Prof. Kannan and Prof. Kremer's recent National Science Foundation award titled "Redesigning I/O Across Heterogeneous Systems" aims to revolutionize I/O acceleration techniques. The project's goal is motivated by the surge in data that has paved the way for diverse storage devices, but conventional I/O software falls short in harnessing their potential. The proposed project unveils a parallel, adaptable storage framework that optimally utilizes heterogeneous storage. The PIs will focus on disentangling monolithic I/O stacks, designing innovative system abstractions for intelligent data placement, and applying learning-based techniques for managing I/O for multi-tenant systems. The project promises to reduce I/O latency, increase throughput, and realize resource-efficient systems. The award is $591,363 over 3 years.
