Abstract: 

As the use of SSDs spreads throughout today's data centers, offices, and homes the importance of verifying their reliability and performance before deployment increases. Drive qualification requires the joint participation of suppliers and customers because datacenters lack the ability to monitor, analyze, and replay production workloads. On the other hand, SSD vendors cannot possibly understand the challenges and behavioral issues of real-world implementations without customer involvement. Meanwhile, both suppliers and customers want to accelerate the entire process as much as possible to reduce overhead costs and get drives into use as fast as possible. Architectures are currently available for accelerated validation, and a wide range of useful tools are available to support the effort.
