The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Solid State Storage Performance Test Specification (PTS) has been published in both Client and Enterprise versions. The PTS prescribes a methodology for comparative performance testing of Solid State Storage products at the device level. This PTS User Guide is intended to provide an easy to understand, step-bystep guide to using the PTS test methodologies and tests. The term “SSD” is used throughout this Tech Note to refer to M.2, mSATA, SATA, SAS and PCIe mass storage devices - whether in module, 1.8”, 2.5” or other form factor or PCIe edge card.
