General-Purpose Persistence Using Flash Memory. Jonathan T. Moore, Michael Hicks, and Scott Nettles. Unpublished manuscript, April 1997.

Flash memory is a semiconductor memory technology that has interesting price, performance, and semantic tradeoffs. We have developed Gordon, a general-purpose persistence system for Standard ML that uses Flash mapped into the virtual address space as its stable storage medium.

Flash supports a write-once/bulk-erase interface that makes it difficult to support update-in-place semantics. In addition, Flash chips are only guaranteed to survive a limited number of erase cycles. Gordon has been designed to overcome these difficulties, and our performance analysis demonstrates good performance and reasonable lifetimes for appropriate application domains.
