Comparing the Datalight Flash File System with UBIFS


UBIFS is an open source combination file system and flash driver for embedded Linux systems. While UBIFS provides adequate performance and reliability for many use cases, device manufacturers requiring faster responsiveness and high reliability attributes should consider substituting Datalight's flash file system. Specifically optimized for resource-constrained multi-function systems, Datalight specializes in software specifically architected for flash memory. Our flagship products include a flash manager, FlashFX Tera and a power fail safe file system, Reliance Nitro. Together these products comprise the Datalight flash file system, which can be easily substituted for UBIFS with significant benefits to the user as described in this paper.
