Methuselah Flash: Rewriting Codes for Extra Long Storage Lifetime

Abstract

Motivated by embedded systems and datacenters that require long-life components, we extend the lifetime of Flash memory using rewriting codes that allow for multiple writes to a page before it needs to be erased. Although researchers have previously explored rewriting codes for this purpose, we make two significant contributions beyond prior work. First, we… (More)
