Processors speed have increased in a steady pace year over year, storage system performance is still the major bottleneck for most computer systems including high performance computers. Many attentions have been given to optimize the storage system speed using various approaches such as caching, intelligent perfecting and scheduling techniques, nevertheless, the storage system remains the performance bottleneck for most computer systems. Solid State Devices (SSD) have lately been used as a cache layer located between the system main memory and the magnetic hard drives in order to create robust and cost effective hybrid storage systems.
