JEDEC Releases Endurance Workloads and Endurance Requirements for SSDs
Although solid-state drives (SSDs) have been around for over a decade and hit mass market several years ago, manufacturers offered different metrics of their performance and reliability. As a result, it is hardly possible to compare different SSDs based on their specs. But this situation is coming to the end as JEDEC publishes the first standards for SSDs.
JEDEC, a leading standard setting organization, has announced the publication of two widely anticipated standards for SSDs: Requirements and Endurance Test Method (JESD218) and Endurance Workloads (JESD219). Interestingly, but the committee that sets the SSD standards is chaired by a senior engineer of Seagate Technology, one of the world's largest makers of hard disk drives which only recently started to offer SSDs.
