Ding Yuan will be presenting The Design and Implementation of a Log-Structured File System (http://www.eecg.toronto.edu/~yuan/teaching/gradOS/papers/lfs.pdf) by Mendel Rosenblum and John K. Ousterhout.

This paper presents the design of log-structured file system, a novel and unconventional file system design at the time when it was published. NetApp's WAFL file system is later designed as log-structured; but perhaps the paper's biggest impact is in the use of Solid State Drive (SSD): today there is a log-structured file system in every SSD.

Doors open at 6:30 pm, presentation will begin at 7:00 pm. There will be food and refreshments provided by Shopify.
