Dynamic Configuration of Cloud Storage Systems
Arif Merchant, Google
Storage traffic at Cloud Data Centers is quite variable, both over time and per workload. Storage is also a very large consumer of resources in Data Centers. Accordingly, it is critical to monitor, manage, and optimize the storage dynamically. We present some real world case studies in the use of adaptive techniques to optimize and manage storage in data centers.
Arif Merchant is a Research Scientist at Google and leads the Storage Analytics group, which studies interactions between components of the storage stack. His interests include distributed storage systems, storage management, and stochastic modeling. He holds the B.Tech. degree from IIT Bombay and the Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University. He is an ACM Distinguished Scientist.
