  author={Cheng Li and Philip Shilane and Fred Douglis and Grant Wallace},
Classic caching algorithms leverage recency, access count, and/or other properties of cached blocks at per-block granularity. However, for media such as flash which have performance and wear penalties for small overwrites, implementing cache policies at a larger granularity is beneficial. Recent research has focused on buffering small blocks and writing in large granularities, called containers, but it has not explored the ramifications and best strategies for caching compound blocks consisting… CONTINUE READING
