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

Recently saw an urgent advisory from EMC for SSD firmware updates - apparently the drives themselves (Samsung I believe) had an internal memory leak in firmware that caused them to die after 700 days of continuous uptime. No amount of redundancy in a storage array can protect against shelves of SSDs going at once.

Wouldn't be surprised if this is related...
