The Mott insulator compound GaV4S8 exhibits resistive switching (RS) properties under electric pulses which could be used in the domain of data storage for future replacement of Flash technology. In this work, we present the characterization and the resistive switching performances of three devices containing GaV4S8 thin films with various electrode sizes and geometries, i.e. planar interdigit electrodes and Metal/Insulator/Metal Au/GaV4S8/Au structures. First, we evidence the good quality of the interfaces between GaV4S8 layers and gold electrodes through transmission electron microscopy observations which allows reliable electrical characterizations. Then, we demonstrate a downscaling effect as the resistive switching amplitude Delta R/R= (R-high-R-low)/R-low increases from a few percents to more than 600\% as the electrode size decreases from 50x50 mu m(2) to 2x2 mu m(2). Finally we show that other performances such as cycling endurance, reaching more than 65,000 RS cycles, data retention time till 10 years or writing speed below 100 ns confirm the high potential of GaV4S8 as active material in future resistive random access memories or Mott memories.
