A mechanism is provided in an array controller of a two-level hierarchical log structured array architecture for a non-volatile memory array for coordinated garbage collection. The two-level hierarchical log structured array (LSA) architecture comprises an array-level LSA in the array controller and a node-level LSA in each node of the non-volatile memory array. The array controller maintains host logical block address (LBA) to node LBA mapping in an array controller connected to a plurality of nodes. A host data processing system issues access requests to host LBA. The mapping maps the host LBA space to a node LBA space of a plurality of nodes. The mechanism makes overprovisioned space in the node LBA space of the plurality of nodes available to the array-level LSA. The mechanism adds additional overprovisioned space at each node LBA space. The array controller initiates array-level garbage collection at the array-level LSA.
