Design of Object-Based Storage Devices [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
DefinitionThe T10 Technical Committee [1] is working on a specification for Object-based Storage Devices (OSDs) that turns files, directories and storage-related elements into objects and handles storage management issues using an extended SCSI-3 command set.A storage object is a virtual entity that groups data that has been determined by the user to be logically related. Space for a storage object is allocated internally by the OSD itself. Three key issues and challenges for designing the OSD are identified as follows: (1) OSD File System (OSDFS), (2) security, and (3) intelligence.In LOMSS, there is little locality of reference within a single OSD, due to the fact that a multimedia file generally comprises many objects and these objects are distributed across many OSDs. Hence, the object management presented in the OSDs of Large-Scale Object-Based Multimedia Storage Systems (LOMSS) is radically different from that of general-purpose host-based file systems, such as XFS, JFS ...
