Semantically-Smart Disk Systems
We propose and evaluate the concept of a semantically-smart disk system (SDS). As opposed to a traditional “smart” disk, an SDS has detailed knowledge of how the file system ...

A Five-Year Study of File-System Metadata
For five years, we collected annual snapshots of filesystem metadata from over 60,000 Windows PC file systems in a large corporation. In this paper, we use these snapshots to s...
