LSI SandForce is announcing its DuraWrite Virtual Capacity (DVC) which is a unique SandForce flash controller feature that extends the available storage capacity for data beyond the physical capacity of the underlying flash memory. Utilizing a compression algorithm, DVC can extend the capacity of an SSD by more than 3x the physical size of the drive. By increasing storage capacity for the same physical flash memory, DVC reduces the cost per gigabyte of delivered capacity. The total increased capacity provided by DVC will vary based on the compressibility of the data itself. DVC provides a SMART attribute to enable applications to control and monitor the remaining free physical space and manage the amount of valid data to ensure proper performance and behavior of the SSD storage.
