Question of active/forward ECC technologies for SSD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Currently very few SSD models have a real and solid ECC implementation - as far as I know only Micron enterprise series (stuff like P400e) have documented internal ECC and even that is only 12 bytes for a 512 bytes block (or possibly 4k or 8k block) - that is incredibly little (at best 2%, and I believe can only correct in the best case up to 6 bytes of errors in a sector) compared to the huge amount of storage that is lost to forms of "dumb over-provisioning" - which is like 28% in the case of the above models!!!

(see also this - http://www.micron.com/~/media/Documents/Products/Technical%20Marketing%20Brief/ssd_datapath_protection_client_enterprise_comp1.pdf )

So the natural question - is there any other SSD manufacturer with a better product with a much more extensive ECC implementation out there?

So nobody ever wanted decent reliability for their SSD? Or at least wondered about it ???
