NAND flash-based devices are widely used in many computer systems, ranging from embedded systems to big-data analytics systems. Architecting storage systems suitable for NAND devices is critical for improving I/O performance and device longevity. In this talk, I present a BlueDBM system, a flash-based storage appliance for big data analytics, which is being built by CSAIL MIT. In particular, I focus on the design and implementation of a software platform for BlueDBM, which includes three novel features: in-storage processing, refactored I/O stacks, and storage-to-storage networks. I first explain an in-storage processing (ISP) framework of BlueDBM that accelerates data analysis by enabling easy use of hardware accelerators implemented in FPGA inside the storage device. I also present the reduced I/O system architecture of BlueDBM that accomplishes short I/O response times and high I/O throughput by refactoring storage I/O stacks, including a file system, a device driver, and stora ge firmware. Finally, I show preliminary results for clustered BlueDBM nodes that exploit high-speed storage-to-storage networks.
