 FlexFS: Flexible Flash File System
1. Research goals
  • Provides the maximum capacity of MLC flash memory
  • Provides the performance and endurance close to SLC flash memory
  • 2. Our approaches
  • Exploit a flexible cell programming of MLC flash memory
  • Write data into SLC region and migrates them to MLC region using idle time
  • Adjust the amount of data to be written to SLC region considering performance and lifetime
  • 3. Published papers
