The OpenSSD Project

Jump to: navigation, search

The OpenSSD Project is an initiative to promote research and education on the recent SSD (Solid State Drive) technology by providing easy access to OpenSSD platforms on which open source SSD firmware can be developed. Currently, we offer an OpenSSD platform based on the commercially successful BarefootTM controller from Indilinx Co., Ltd. This site is also intended to be a forum to share various simulators, tools, and workload generators and traces related to SSDs, among researchers in academia and industry.
