Data stored on solid state drives (SSD) will slowly degenerate. This is due to the charge in each NAND flash cell slowly leaking out. The rate this happens at is called data retention. Data retention decreases in higher temperatures and with increasing P/E cycles. The issue can be mitigated by periodically refreshing the data based on temperature and the P/E cycle number.
Keeping the Data Cool in Heated Situations
As temperature rises, the risk to your data increases! Higher temperatures mean that the charge representing your data will leak faster. This isn’t a problem as iRetention keeps your data cool no matter how hot it gets!
Handling It the Smart Way
Operating conditions change rapidly and the SSD have to instantaneously adapt to any situation. iRetention is a technology that combines temperature and P/E data in an intelligent algorithm that actively detects and handles any changes in real-time.
