Proceedings of the international workshop on Storage network architecture and parallel I/Os - SNAPI '04
A disruptive new storage technology based on Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) is emerging as an exciting complement to the memory hierarchy. This study reviews and summarizes the current research about integrating this new technology into computer systems from four levels: device, architecture, system and application. In addition, several potential research issues in MEMS storage are identified, including (1) exploiting idle read/write tips to perform prefetching, (2) reversal access todoi:10.1145/1162628.1162635 fatcat:33mxh5yrxbebbmkxos22fkhujq
