How to Compare SSDs

Presented by

George Crump with Storage Switzerland and Doug Rollins with Micron

About this talk

The lack of standardization in SSD specs makes a definitive comparison challenging. Published data is useful as a first pass, but users are advised to run their own tests to arrive at a final decision. Device performance can be examined using data, such as a write saturation curve, provided that data is taken from the correct region. Endurance, a parameter less significant in hard disk drive (HDD) evaluation, is critical in SSDs and can be compared using published data as well. Testing should be conducted using real world data sets, configurations and infrastructure. And care must be taken to assure that the testing apparatus can properly exercise SSDs, which puts an order of magnitude greater requirements on testing systems than HDDs. In this 45 minute webinar, Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst, George Crump and Doug Rollins, Enterprise Application Engineer from Micron, will examine the process of comparing SSDs through published specs and in-house testing.
