[G3D] HP Enterprise SSD users, please check and update firmware (before a kill-switch kicks in)

Source
Quote:
...
So here's the thing, back in November/December HP issued a warning towards users of SAS SSDs in the enterprise segment (HPE). A series of their storage units will drop into complete failure after precisely 32,768 hours of usage. So that's 1365 days and thus 3.7 years. It is the SAS gear that often ends up in HP servers btw.
...
but once you reach 32,768 hours of usage the HPe SSD will be terminated, gone, unusable.
...
After the SSD failure occurs, neither the SSD nor the data can be recovered. In addition, SSDs which were put into service at the same time will likely fail nearly simultaneously.
...
There is a list of systems that have the affected bad firmware.

I can't wait to hear horror stories when these fail in places that are not updating the firmware regularly (and I'm sure there are more than a few of those).
One hell of an oversight.

Oh man, imagine having an entire array of these SSDs that just decides to switch off all at the same time. Failover isn't going to save an entire array going dead at the same time.

HP probably thought that enterprise has a replacement cycle that should be 3 years so no problem if their SSDs life is 3.7 years.

Oh man this is for real?!

What the crap. That's going to start earning HP a negative reputation. Their blade servers already go full panic mode if you install non HP branded accessories so I guess I'm not surprised this is a thing.

Considering my history with HP, I'm not surprised.

HP already has a negative reputation, as far as I'm concerned. This just adds another reason to the many for why I avoid HP like the Coronavirus.

Planned obsolescence. Why else would any half sensible firmware self destruct and take all data with it from a stupid power on time counter.
