HPE blames solid state drive failure for outages at Australian Tax Office


Re: I'm guessing....

Unless HP's wear levelling across the drives is REALLY bad on 3PAR (and I don't think it is), then the chances of a drive wearing out within a few years is vanishingly small. More likely is a firmware related problem either within the 3PAR or the drives themselves reporting a false drive failures across two drives simultaneously in a RAID-5 config. Actual failure is again very unlikely, solid state drives are spectacularly reliable from an electronic component point of view.
