SNIA’s SSSI has introduced a new booklet: How Controllers Maximize SSD Life. This 20-page volume, which can be downloaded as a pdf for free from the SNIA website, is a compilation of a series of blog posts on the SSD Guy blog.
The booklet explains the tricks SSD controller designers use to extend NAND flash life far beyond the limits posed by NAND endurance specifications of 10,000 or fewer erase/write cycles.
The series was written by this blogger with important help from companies like Intel, SMART Storage, Marvell, and Calypso Systems.
Hard copies are available through the SNIA Solid State Storage Initiative.
