The OpenSSD Project
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.
Note: A new OpenSSD platform is coming this year...
We are preparing the second OpenSSD platform called Cosmos. The Cosmos OpenSSD platform is based on the PCIe interface and will debut in the Flash Memory Summit in August, 2014. So, stay tuned!
The Indilinx Jasmine Platform is the Indilinx's reference implementation of SSD based on the BarefootTM controller. The Indilinx's BarefootTM controller is an ARM-based SATA controller used in numerous high-performance SSDs such as Corsair Memory's Extreme/Nova, Crucial Technology's M225, G.Skill's Falcon, A-RAM's Pro series, OCZ's Vertex/Vertex Turbo/Agility/Solid II, Patriot Memory's Torqx/Koi, RunCore's IV, SuperTanlent's Ultradrive ME/GX, etc. For more information on the Indilinx Jasmine Platform, please visit the following pages:
