SSDs can dramatically improve performance for these applications by delivering very high I/O performance at a very low latency. They do so without relying on mechanical devices, but rather by leveraging semiconductor memory. That memory is nonvolatile, so that power outages will not cause data to be lost; on the contrary, the data will be retained for later use.

Everyone in IT knows that big data is a force to be reckoned with. The market is exploding with massive quantities of structured and unstructured data, which must be collected, sorted and stored safely.
With the advent of cloud-based services and the growing need for consolidation and data center efficiency, more enterprises are turning to virtualization as a way of optimizing processing power while minimizing energy usage and footprint.
"SanDisk’s heritage of innovation in flash storage technologies has led to the development of our flash-optimized software technology enabling applications to capitalize on the benefits of flash scalability and performance."
This white paper explores the causes of the shift and the implications for the legacy technology—the traditional hard disk drive (HDD)—and presents the case for a new technology: the solid state drive (SSD).

The rate at which storage performance of hard drives has grown is well below the rate of compute and networking. This paper discusses how solid state technology attempts to address the performance requirements and how it will impact this environment and potentially change infrastructure requirements.
"Data is constantly created, gathered, stored, accessed, sorted and applied. It can be used to solve problems, access personal information, track progress, increase sales, and a myriad of other reasons."
"The growth in data being created, manipulated, and stored continues unabated across businesses of all sizes. Compounding the challenge of keeping up with this data growth is the rapid growth in regulations related to how and where information is stored."
‘More and faster’ seems to be the focus of many solid state storage devices that are designed to improve application performance. Maximum IOPS, throughput and capacity are what’s emphasized as server-side flash solutions compete for attention in the marketplace and for business in the data center.
"The inherent nature of NAND flash technology requires sophisticated flash management techniques to make it a practical storage medium for computing systems."
"This document addresses key concepts of erasing user data in both HDDs and SSDs. More specifically, this explains why traditional HDD data erasing methods are not entirely effective for eliminating user data and why SSD specific features, like secure erase, are more effective."
Solid State Disks reserve a portion of their total flash address space for “Over Provisioning” (OP), a percentage of the total physical memory reserved by the SSD and not part of the device’s logical address space.
Threats to data integrity in Solid State Drives, as in HDDs, fall into two basic categories: NAND flash memory errors (analogous to media errors in HDDs) and errors that occur to data in-flight either to or from the flash.
Enterprise and industrial storage system power supplies are designed with the highest reliability in mind, and subsystem designers are careful in selecting the most reliable regulation components. However, the reality is that power to data storage drives does occasionally fail.
