How write amplification kills designs: steps to avoid early obsolescence

Presented by

Thom Denholm, Technical Product Manager at Tuxera, & Sami Kassimäki, Product Manager at Tuxera

About this talk

Devices with NAND storage have a fixed lifetime – often less than designers intended, with write amplification as the driving factor behind this shortfall. The write amplification factor (WAF) is an important component of understanding the actual lifetime of a product design, and in avoiding related issues like product recalls. In this webinar you will learn: • What write amplification is and why it’s crucial to consider for flash media designs. • Concrete comparisons on Linux and AWS/FreeRTOS, along with suggestions on how best to manage these challenges.
