The 7th USENIX Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST '09) brings together storage system researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in the design, implementation, evaluation, and deployment of storage systems. The conference will consist of two and a half days of technical presentations, including refereed papers, Work-in-Progress reports, and a poster session.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Archival storage systems
  • Caching, replication, and consistency
  • Database storage issues
  • Designs with emerging storage devices
  • Distributed I/O (wide-area, grid, peer-to-peer)
  • Empirical evaluation of storage systems
  • Experience with deployed systems
  • Innovative file or data storage system design
  • Manageability
  • Mobile and personal storage
  • Parallel I/O
  • Reliability, availability, disaster tolerance
  • Scalability
  • Security
  • Storage as a service
  • Storage networking
  • Virtualization
