Title: FILE SYSTEM STREAMS SUPPORT AND USAGE
Abstract:
A file system is provided with awareness of "streams" on an SSD to enable more efficient storage of files and other data on the SSD. The file system may be configured to receive a first request from an application to associate a file with a particular stream identifier available on a storage device, intercept one or more subsequent requests to write data to the file, associate the one or more subsequent requests with the stream identifier, and instruct a storage driver associated with the storage device to write the requested data to the identified stream.
