Ensuring solid-state drives are up to scratch: Data buffering scheme improves performance of solid-state drives
A data buffering scheme improves the performance of solid-state drives in large-scale, data-intensive applications. Solid-state drives (SSDs) store digital information using electronic circuits. The power efficiency of SSDs and their ability to read and write data quickly means that they are becoming the primary storage device in computers. A major drawback of SSDs, however, is the limited number of times that data can be stored and deleted — an aspect that hinders the use of these devices for data-intensive applications known as data-center environments.
