Due to the NAND process scale-down to reduce manufacturing costs, the endurance and reliability characteristics are on the decline. On the other hand, the user’s demand for bigger capacity with higher performance for storage increases due to fast evolution and adoption of high performance multimedia applications. In order to overcome these challenges, the software contains a  more sophisticated and intelligent algorithm. Furthermore, The-AIO is focusing on the vertical optimization between host software and NAND flash controller for performance maximization with high reliability. Here are some key strengths of our technologies justifying why you should choose The-AIO.
Statically reconfigurable mapping engine
In order to maximize NAND parallelism and to improve write performance, a mapping algorithm, translating a logical address into a physical address is very important. We provide a statically reconfigurable mapping engine, which can be configured for application-specific optimization. Specially, it helps to balance random write performance with memory footprint via configurable parameters.
Intelligent I/O pattern detector
In order to optimize performance, many FTL algorithms such as caching and block allocation need a user’s I/O access pattern. We provide various detection schemes able to distinguish sequential or random requests and hot or cold requests based on various algorithms such as LRU(Least Recently Used), second chance and hashing.
Power throttling technique with dynamic parallelism degree controls
In order to reduce the power consumption, The-AIO’s power management module schedules NAND I/O operations controlling the number of outstanding I/Os. The power scheduling is performed proactively and sometimes aggressively, depending on the workload and power status preserving the maximum rated performance.
Channel-crossing global wear-leveling 
In an attempt to extend the storage’s lifetime, The-AIO's FTL performs the wear-leveling, not only between blocks in a same chip, but also globally between blocks in different chips even over channels. This greatly helps to handle severely biased writes often observed in some applications.
I/O scheduler & File System
Storage performance generally depends not only on the FTL algorithm in the device, but also the file system and I/O scheduler on the host. That is the reason why The-AIO focuses the vertical optimization of the storage software stack. Generally, many features of file system or I/O scheduler were designed for legacy storage such as HDD Storage software and did not consider interleaving or stripping operations for NAND based storage. So The-AIO is now researching the optimization points of legacy file systems and developing new log structured file systems in order to maximize NAND performance.
