—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(More)
Conventional prefetching schemes regard prediction accuracy as important because useless data prefetched by a faulty prediction may pollute the cache. If prefetch-ing requires considerably low read cost but the prediction is not accurate, it may or may not be beneficial depending on the situation. However, the problem of low prediction accuracy can be(More)
In this paper, we present the scalable and efficient flash file system using the combination of NAND and Phase-change RAM (PRAM). Until now, several flash file systems have been developed considering the physical characteristics of NAND flash. However, previous flash file systems still have a high performance overhead and a scalability problem of the(More)
As the DRAM based main memory significantly increases the power and cost budget of a computer system, new memory technologies such as Phase-change RAM (PRAM), Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM), and Magnetic RAM (MRAM) have been proposed to replace the DRAM. Among these memories, PRAM is the most promising candidate for large scale main memory because of its high(More)
