Here's the 1st article suggestion.

Optimizing processors for SSD - which is the main Storage / SSD applications overview page on Cadence's own web site.

Neil says - See how optimizing processors for SSD can gain a 2x to 250+x speed-up on popular functions as well as reduce the energy consumed by a similar amount!
This page shows the results of 6 optimizations along with Application Notes showing the details for Lempel Ziv compression (pdf) and AES encryption (pdf and image).
