    New Performance Test Service Launched for Solid State Drives

    The SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative (SNIA SSSI) announces a testing service where interested parties may submit their SSD products for testing to the SSS Performance Test Specification.

    Drive Requirements

    Any mSATA, SATA, SAS and PCIe SSDs can be tested. The tested device must be recognized as a logical device by CentOS 6.3 and must support Purge (via Security Erase, Format Unit, or equivalent proprietary method of Purge).

    Available Tests

    Testing is based on the SSS PTS version 1.1.  Visit the SSS Performance Test Service page for more information on the tests.

    Testing Process

    Testing will be conducted by Calypso Systems, a certified SSS PTS testing facility.  Participants must submit two (2) samples of the SSD to be tested and provide prepaid return express shipment bills (FedEx, DHL or UPS). Testing will take approximately 3-4 weeks to complete.

    Any failed test, or test that will not complete, will be tested twice and error logs will be provided.  All product test result data will be kept confidential.

    Test results are provided in standard SNIA Report Format as specified in the SSS Performance Test Specification.
