Random read errors are commonplace in the use of NAND flash. Therefore, it is essential to preserve data integrity.
The properties of NAND flash memory make it ideal for applications that require high integrity while operating in challenging environments.
Flash memory has many benefits over conventional rotating media including compact size, low power consumption, zero seek time, and better shock resistance.
When utilising flash memory devices, it is a problem to deal with potentially intermittent power sources or power availability.
Erasure of data on a disk drive is not a simple task. Deleting a file merely removes its name from the directory structure’s special disk sectors.
Within several easy steps, different protection level to different zones can be assigned and protection mechanism can be activated.
SMART (S.M.A.R.T.), an acronym stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, is an open standard allowing an individual disk drive in the ATA/IDE or SCSI interface to automatically monitor its own health and report potential problems in order to prevent data loss.
A wear leveling algorithm manages the uneven “wear” on the sectors of a flash media memory by distributing the writes through many sectors of the flash media.
