Nested QoS: Providing flexible SLAs in shared storage systems
The increasing popularity of storage and server consolidation introduces new challenges for resource management, capacity provisioning, and application performance guaranteeing. In addition, the bursty nature of storage ...
Resource Allocation Models for Multi-Tiered Storage: Balancing System Efficiency and QoS
Multi-tiered storage systems made up of combined Solid State Drives (SSDs) and Hard Disks (HDs) are becoming increasingly popular in shared data centers due to their favorable cost and performance characteristics. Meantime, ...
Tunable plasmonic nanostructures: From fundamental nanoscale optics to surface-enhanced spectroscopies
In this thesis, I demonstrate the rational design and controllable fabrication of a series of novel plasmonic nanostructures with judiciously tailored optical properties including perfect nanoshells, roughened subwavelength ...
