SNIA Releases Enterprise SSD Testing Spec

SNIA Releases Enterprise SSD Testing Spec

Tuesday May 24th 2011

Specification tests performance of SSDs regardless of vendor.

Specification that can be used to test the performance of solid-state drives regardless of the vendor has been announced by SNIA. The Storage Networking Industry Association, an industry trade group of vendors and universities that develops and promotes standards for storage systems, claims the SSD Performance Test Specification levels the playing field in benchmark testing.

"Jim Handy, an analyst at market research firm Objective Analysis who was in the specification's technical working group, said, ‘The SNIA test specification is not an end-all, but it is certainly a big step ahead of the specifications that are commonly used by SSD makers.’ Handy said one of the most important aspects of the specification is that it takes care to ensure that SSDs are first ‘pre-conditioned’ prior to testing, meaning data is first written to them and then erased to break the drives in.”
