SSD Useful Life Calculator (beta)
This tool calculates SSD useful life period based on the anticipated workload.
|SSD #1||SSD #2||SSD #3|
|Anticipated workload: 84.935 GB/day|
|Time to reach TBW/PBW value (yr.)||4.121||30.483|
|Required useful life period: 3 yr|
|Average write workload (MB/s)||1.350||9.989|
|GB written / day (GB/day)||116.667||863.014|
DWPD or DW/D - Drive Writes Per Day.
GB/day - Gigabytes written per day.
TBW - Terabytes Written.
PBW - Petabytes Written.
In addition to conversion between different SSD endurance parameters - DWPD, TBW, PBW, and GB/day, this tool also
performs two other operations:
- evaluation of the actual SSD useful life (time to reach TBW/PBW value) base on the anticipated write workload;
- calculation of the average workload needed for reaching TBW/PBW value within specified useful life period
(if different from the manufacturer's warranty period).
To calculate the actual useful life period enter anticipated workload parameters in one of the forms:
IOPS, data rate (MB/s) or data written per day (GB/day).
If two or more parameters are entered, the one with the higher GB/day value will be used.
