Flash Memory System

1. Motivation

- Hybrid hard disk employs a NAND flash memory as a non-volatile cache


- Efficient use of NVC is important for performance and power consumption


2. Research goals

- Increasing a ratio of HDD spin-down time and reduction of power consumption


- Pinning policy for the best I/O response time about booting and application launching


- Maximizing of parallelization of hard disk drive and flash memory
