Reliability in Solid State Drives is measured in Uncorrectable Bit Error Rate (UBER), the number of data errors per bits read. The JEDEC JESD218A specification calls out for an UBER of 10-16 for Enterprise class SSD.
SMART's SSDs are specified with an UBER of 10-17, a factor 10x better than the JEDEC specification calls out for. SMART's SSDs achieve this level of reliability through the usage of 2 innovative technologies: DataGuard and EverGuard.
The use of high-reliability discrete capacitors improves the overall reliability of the SSD design when compared to competing solutions. Unlike electrolytic super capacitors, discrete capacitors do not degrade over time or at elevated temperatures and ensure a reliable and safe operation throughout the warranted lifetime of SMART SSDs.
