  • Patent number: 11507499
    Abstract: The system can receive data to be written to a non-volatile memory in the distributed storage system. The received data can include a plurality of input segments. The system can assign consecutive logical block addresses (LBAs) to the plurality of input segments. The system can then compress the plurality of input segments to generate a plurality of fixed-length compressed segments, with each fixed-length compressed segment aligned with a physical block address (PBA) in a set of PBAs. The system compresses the plurality of input segments to enable an efficient use of storage capacity in the non-volatile memory. Next, the system can write the plurality of fixed-length compressed segments to a corresponding set of PBAs in the non-volatile memory. The system can then create, in a data structure, a set of entries which map the LBAs of the input segments to the set of PBAs. This data structure can be used later by the system when processing a read request including a LBA.

  • Patent number: 11487465
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a system which facilitates data movement. The system allocates, in a volatile memory of a first storage drive, a first region to be accessed directly by a second storage drive or a first NIC. The first storage drive, the second storage drive, and the first NIC are associated with a first server. The system stores data in the first region. Responsive to receiving a first request from the second storage drive to read the data, the system transmits, by the first storage drive to the second storage drive, the data stored in the first region while bypassing a system memory of the first server. Responsive to receiving, from a third storage drive associated with a second server, a second request to read the data, the system retrieves, by the first NIC, the data stored in the first region while bypassing the system memory of the first server.

  • Publication number: 20220342750
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a system which facilitates data management. During operation, the system receives, by a storage device, a plurality of data blocks. The system compresses the data blocks to obtain compressed data blocks, and performs error correction code (ECC)-encoding on the compressed data blocks to obtain ECC-encoded data blocks. The system stores the ECC-encoded data blocks in a buffer prior to writing the ECC-encoded data blocks in a non-volatile memory of the storage device, and reorganizes an order of the ECC-encoded data blocks in the buffer to match a size of a physical page of the non-volatile memory. Responsive to a first set of the reorganized ECC-encoded data blocks filling a first physical page, the system writes the first set of the reorganized ECC-encoded data blocks to the first physical page.
