Understanding the Robustness of SSDs under Power Fault
search google for 'Understanding the Robustness of SSDs under Power Fault' and read the PDF. Almost all SSD manufacturer's drives exhibited errors in the testing performed. I suspect STEC is one of the two (out of 15) that did not have any failures.
Caught my attention, too. It ain't fio or they would have said so - they were in on the research. Detail: both of the performing drives we're of the same make. I want it to be stec, but the researchers have a proprietary interest in sluring the immaturity of the whole industries technology.
Hyper scale customers claim that data integrity is built into the system, not the components, and this lack of truth in vendor claims suggests why they would want insist on that. Still, if I were the stand out vendor I'd want folks to know - it surely adds a few nines to the system.
