Abstract: 

Discussion of emerging Performance tests for NAND Flash based solid state storage devices used in Client and Enterprise applications. This discussion focuses on device level synthetic tests that are tuned to more closely reflect workload characteristics observed in real world use cases. Difficulties in successful capture and replay of user workloads (IO trace capture and playback) leads to the need for more finely tuned synthetic device level tests that can provide repeatable and comparable performance tests.
