An efficient NAND flash file system for flash memory storage

In this paper, we present an efficient flash file system for flash memory storage. Flash memory, especially NAND flash memory, has become a major method for data storage. Currently, a block level translation interface is required between an existing file system and flash memory chips due to its physical characteristics. However, the approach of existing file systems on top of the emulating block interface has many restrictions and is, thus, inefficient because existing file systems are designed for disk-based storage systems. The flash file system proposed in this paper is designed for NAND flash memory storage while considering the existing file system characteristics. Our target performance metrics are the system booting time and garbage collection overheads, which are important issues in flash memory. In our experiments, the proposed flash file system outperformed other flash file systems both in booting time and garbage collection overheads.
