The SSD Endurance Experiment: Testing data retention at 300TB


A new wrinkle on the long road
— 10:02 PM on November 25, 2013

We're slamming six SSDs with a nearly continuous stream of writes to see what happens as the flash wears out. Our subjects have now reached the 300TB mark, so it's time for another health and performance check-up. We've also added an unpowered retention test to see if the drives can hold data when left unplugged for a few days.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
