An efficient I/O scheduling scheme for solid state drives is presented. The proposed scheme fully exploits the characteristics of solid state drives: no data access overhead and asymmetric read and write performance. Through implementation on Linux operating systems, it is shown that the proposed scheme significantly improves the performance of I/O subsystems for solid state drives.
