ABSTRACT
<p>Gordon is a system architecture for data-centric applications combining low-power processors, flash memory, and data-centric programming systems to improve performance and efficiency for data-centric applications. The article explores the Gordon design space and the design of a specialized flash translation layer. Gordon systems can outperform disk-based clusters by 1.5&#x00D7; and deliver 2.5&#x00D7; more performance per watt.</p>
INDEX TERMS
