FlashCache: a NAND flash memory file cache for low power web servers

  title={FlashCache: a NAND flash memory file cache for low power web servers},
  author={Taeho Kgil and Trevor N. Mudge},
We propose an architecture that uses NAND flash memory to reduce main memory power in web server platforms. Our architecture uses a two level file buffer cache composed of a relatively small DRAM, which includes a primary file buffer cache, and a flash memory secondary file buffer cache. Compared to a conventional DRAM-only architecture, our architecture consumes orders of magnitude less idle power while remaining cost effective. This is a result of using flash memory, which consumes orders of… CONTINUE READING
