In this paper we build on our research in data management on native Flash storage. In particular we demonstrate the advantages of intelligent data placement strategies. To e ectively manage physical Flash space and organize the data on it, we utilize novel storage structures such as regions and groups. These are coupled to common DBMS logical structures, thus require no extra overhead for the DBA. The experimental results indicate an improvement of transactional throughput for OLTP benchmarks of up to 60% and decrease in write-amplification of up to 2x, which doubles the longevity of Flash SSD. During the demonstration the audience can experience the advantages of the proposed approach on real Flash hardware.
