Cloud technology is one of the latest forms of technology. A cloud is a place where exactly the data is stored. Also, the cloud is the place where the data is managed and processed. Cloud ensures that the data managed on a cluster or the network of servers. All of these servers are available remotely […]
I compiled a list of good systems conferences and deadlines for my own reference. Here I share the list and hope it can help others who also need such a list. This list is kept updated. A PDF version: Systems Conference and Deadlines. Links to conference websites: Systems Conferences.
Storage Architecture and Challenges in Faculty Summit, July 29, 2010, by Andrew Fikes, Principal Engineer. Download PDF (from archive.org). This slides introduces some of Google’s storage systems with insights and discussion of problems.
Research on Cloud Computing has made big progresses and many excellent large-scale systems have been designed in recent years. I compiled a list of some large-scale data storage and processing systems in datacenters as follows. Storage systems ∞ Google File System (GFS): http://research.google.com/archive/gfs.html HDFS implementation: https://hadoop.apache.org/docs/r2.7.2/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/HdfsDesign.html Colossus (GFS2): Colossus: Successor to the Google File System […]
Colossus is the successor to the Google File System (GFS) as mentioned in the paper on Spanner at OSDI 2012. Colossus is also used by spanner to store its tablets. The information about Colossus is slim compared with GFS which is published in the paper at SOSP 2003. There is still some information about Colossus […]
