SSD- What’s the difference between SLC and MLC?

It’s time dissect the two main types of flash chips in order to understand why not all SSDs are created equal. What is after all the physical difference between SLC and MLC? SLC stands for Single Level Cell and just like the name suggests can store one bit per NAND gate hence SLC cell has […]

Program and Erase Cycle (P/E)- SSD Technology

In my earlier post, I talked about SSD drives and how they can use an algorithm called Static Data rotation to help prevent premature wear on the drive. Today, I am going to briefly cover the write operations of SSD/Flash Memory. One of the limitations of flash memory (Which preceded SSD technology) is that while it can be read […]

Static Data Rotation- SSD Technology to look for in Enterprise products

For many years, RAM and Disk was and still is today, the main culprit for bottlenecks in performance. With the lower cost of Memory, the shift has fallen more on disks to be the slow point in systems. Large Enterprise companies would have numerous external storage devices to get around this issue. (SAN, DAS, NAS, […]
