On Flash-Based DBMSs: Issues for Architectural Re-Examination

By: Sang-Won Lee, Won Kim

Abstract

One technical issue with the flash file system is how to deal efficiently with small random writes, that is writing a small amount of data to blocks of the flash memory. The trouble with the small random writes is that they require the very expensive erase operations. One source of the small random writes is updates to metadata.
