Cooperative Flash Management

By taking a system-driven approach to Flash storage,
Radian has pioneered Cooperative Flash Management
(CFM) technology as an alternative to traditional Flash
Translation Layers (FTLs). Radian’s Symphonic™ CFM
redistributes functionality and responsibilities between
the host system and SSD. Built on the premise of
operating in logical host address space, Symphonic
leverages the intelligent segment cleaning and macro
scheduling that many modern host software stacks are
already performing. This enables the host to control
and schedule processes such as garbage collection,
but offloads process execution and lower level media
management to the SSD.

In addition to Symphonic CFM, the RMS-350 SSD
offers a configuration with a Radian implementation
that has an Open-Channel 2* compliant interface. In this
implementation, Radian leverages some of its innovative
CFM functionality, such as its ‘Idealized Flash’, ASL
Configurator, Cooperative and ‘Decoupled’ Wear
Leveling, Cooperative and ‘Decoupled’ NAND Maintenance,
and several other specialized Radian features
that uniquely enable delivering a data center class SSD
product that has an Open-Channel 2 compliant

Architectural Advantages


  • Optimal for tiering different classes of memory storage media
  • DMA engine improves system performance and offloads host resources
  • Scale NV-RAM and Flash tiers proportionately as SSDs are added to the system
  • Delegated Move capability reduces traffic across the system bus and host overhead
  • Device appears as a block device that supports DMA or byte addressable mmap PIO
  • Simplifies low latency support of NVMe Direct, RDMA, or NVMe-over-Fabric implementations

With a similar architecture to Radian’s RMS-325 edge card, the U.2 RMS-350 provides host systems with direct control over both its byte addressable User NV-RAM, high capacity Flash storage, and transferring data between the two medias. The example below illustrates how the RMS-325 enables a host to write data into its on-board NV-RAM, then issue a single Delegated Move command to transfer the data from NV-RAM to local Flash storage.
