 Hybrid Hard Disk Drive
1. Motivation
  • Hybrid hard disk employs a NAND flash memory as a non-volatile cache
  • Efficient use of NVC is important for performance and power consumption
  • 2. Research goals
  • Increasing a ratio of HDD spin-down time and reduction of power consumption
  • Pinning policy for the best I/O response time about booting and application launching
  • Maximizing of parallelization of hard disk drive and flash memory
