White Paper: Best Use of Discards to Improve Flash Storage Performance

June 5, 2017 Thom Denholm, Datalight
Solid state drives (SSDs), and their embedded cousins, eMMCs (embedded multimedia cards) and UFS (Universal Flash Storage), are seen by many as the future of mass storage. However, steep declines in performance can arise if the NAND flash is not utilized properly – and doing that requires a steady diet of discards. This paper discusses how embedded devices can experience the best possible performance over time while avoiding the increased latency that can accompany discards. Download this paper to find out how Datalight’s Reliance Nitro file system can deliver these results for devices using a variety of operating systems and storage media.
