thoughts on high-performance storage and system software development

Storage research

I maintain Stasis, a flexible implementation of the ARIES recovery protocol, and bLSM ("blossom"), a read-optimized log structured index that targets low-latency serving environments, and provides extremely high random write throughput.

I also contribute to the YCSB benchmarking framework, and MapKeeper standardized key-value storage API.
