ABSTRACT

Enterprise storage systems that require high data reliability are applying RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) systems to recover from data loss and failure. In particular, RAID 5 ensures space efficiency and reliability by distributing parity across multiple storage devices. However, when storage devices have different capacities, RAID is built based on the smallest capacity storage device, resulting in wasted storage space. Therefore, research is needed to solve this resource management problem. In this paper, we propose a method for RAID grouping of each independent NAND flash memory block in a RAID consisting of SSD (Solid State Disk) with external SSDs as well as internal SSDs. This method is divided into a policy for delivering block information inside SSDs to the RAID system and a policy for RAID grouping of physical addresses delivered from the RAID system. This method allows us to maintain a RAID that does not waste resources when SSDs of different capacities are grouped into RAID5. Finally, we demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method through experiments.
