Since the advent of digitalization, there has been an exponential growth in the volume of data. With this boost in the amount of data, hard disk drives (HDDs) could not sustain the data transfer rates, leading to bottlenecks in data access. Solid state drives (SSDs) have come to the forefront as a promising solution to our modern-day storage demands. SSDs are constantly evolving with upgrades of their critical components to provide high access speeds. One such component is created by the division of non-volatile memory (NVM), commonly known as namespaces, for the NVMe specification.
Namespaces are perceived as formatted logical blocks that kick-start block storage in SSDs. Each block in a typical flash chip consists of many
