Abstract
The Atropos logical volume manager allows applications
to exploit characteristics of its underlying collection of
disks. It stripes data in track-sized units and explicitly
exposes the boundaries, allowing applications to maxi-
mize efficiency for sequential access patterns even when
they share the array. Further, it supports efficient diag-
onal access to blocks on adjacent tracks, allowing ap-
plications to orchestrate the layout and access to two-
dimensional data structures, such as relational database
tables, to maximize performance for both row-based and
column-based accesses.
1 Introduction
Many storage-intensive applications, most notably
database systems and scientific computations, have
