Storage plays a pivotal role in the performance of many applications. Optimizing disk architectures is a design-time as well as a run-time issue and requires balancing between performance, power and capacity. The design space is large and there are many "knobs" that can be used to optimize disk drive behavior. Here we present a sensitivity-based optimization for disk architectures (SODA) which leverages results from digital circuit design. Using detailed models of the electro-mechanical
