Introduction

Modern storage solutions, such as non-volatile solid-state devices, offer unprecedented speed of access over high-bandwidth interconnects. An array of flash memory chips attached directly to a 1-10 GB fiber switch can support up to 100K page writes per second. While no single host can drive such throughput, the combined power of a large group of clients, accessing the shared storage over a common interconnect, can utilize the system at full capacity.
