Samsung creates open source file system F2FS for NAND flash storage
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
Samsung has come up with a new “flash-friendly” file system for NAND flash memory-based storage devices such as SSDs, SD cards and eMMCs. Called F2FS, the file system tackles problems associated with older file systems intended mainly for older physical storage systems, such as issues in accessing data stored on specific, physical locations on the drive itself, and the read/write limits on flash storage. Flash memory-based storage devices face no such problems as they are a form of solid-state storage and F2FS takes advantage of this.
