As demands for higher data transfer rates mount, temperature is joining bandwidth and latency as a key consideration in storage system design. The STEAM simulator lets users abstract the details of low-level recording physics and heat transfer phenomena and facilitates exploration of a large design space of storage configurations under realistic workloads.
