Challenges of Tomorrow's Data Storage in Automotive

Automotive systems have become increasingly complex, raising the risk of flash memory wear out occurring before end-of-life of the car. What’s more, fragmentation could simply break an automotive system. This whitepaper describes those effects in more detail and suggests ways to mitigate the risks.

The Impacts of File System Fragmentation on Automotive Storage Performance

Groundbreaking studies have shown fragmentation to be a risk to modern automotive systems, potentially causing sluggish flash storage performance and even critical system failure within a car. This whitepaper examines in detail the ways that fragmentation affects the performance of an automotive system.

How to Avoid End of Life from NAND Correctable Errors

Flash media is fabulous for most use cases, but heavy reads can cause correctable errors. Linux flash file systems actually shorten the life of the media when dealing with these errors. How does this change with multiple bits per cell, including recent QLC NAND? This paper, by Thom Denholm, covers both this problem and the impacts in detail, from flash file systems to SSDs and other NAND flash-based media.

Troubleshooting Corrupted Data

Over the years, we have developed considerable expertise and special-purpose tools to help diagnose all kinds of data issues. Our approach is to first determine what’s wrong, then to try to identify the steps it would take to get the system to this state. Is it something that the software could have caused? Did the media fail or is it something different? This paper examines how such questions are answered, and describes file system-related troubleshooting techniques.

How Modern File Systems Detect & Respond to SD and SSD Media Failures

Managed NAND media (SD and SSD) has failure modes which are devastating to embedded systems. It is crucial that file systems detect and manage these failures, and this paper outlines methods used by some Linux file systems to do so. It also examines one additional failure mode not handled properly by any open source file system. Learn more by downloading the full whitepaper.
