Alignment of clusters to pages is provided in a non-volatile memory system that receives data from a host in clusters and writes data to a memory array in units of a page. Alignment is implemented within each block using offsets in logical-to-physical mapping of data. Different blocks may have different offsets. When a host sends data with different cluster boundary locations, the data may be written with different offsets so that data maintains alignment.
