"title": "Managing SSD wear rate in hybrid storage arrays",
"abstract": "A technique for use in balancing flash drive wear in data storage systems is disclosed. Multiple sets of flash drives are identified where data is stored as multiple slices striped across the set of flash drives. A write rate at which data will be written to the multiple slices stored on the set of flash drives during a next time interval is predicted. A number of bytes that can be written to each set of flash drives is determined. A metric representative of a wear rate is determined for each set of flash drives. HDD relocation candidates are identified and a relocation process to relocate identified slices initiated.",

A method for use in balancing solid state drives (SSD) wear in data storage systems, the method comprising:\nidentifying multiple sets of SSDs and multiple sets of hard disk drives (HDDs), wherein each set of SSDs and HDDs store data arranged in multiple slices striped across the respective set of SSDs and HDDs;\npredicting, for each set of SSDs, a write rate at which data will be written to the multiple slices stored on the set of SSDs during a next time interval;\ndetermining, for each set of SSDs, a number of bytes that can be written to each set of SSDs, wherein the number is based on a remaining program/erase (PE) cycle count for each respective set of SSDs;\ndetermining, for each set of SSDs, a wear metric representative of a wear rate corresponding to the set of SSDs, the metric based on a SSDs' determined predicted write rate and the determined number of bytes that can be written to each set of SSDs;...",
"description": "TECHNICAL FIELD\nThe present invention relates to managing solid state drive wear rate in hybrid data storage arrays.\nBACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION\nStorage devices are employed to store data that are accessed by computer systems. Examples of basic storage devices include volatile and non-volatile memory, floppy drives, hard disk drives, tape drives, and optical drives. A storage device may be locally attached to an input/output (IO) channel of a computer. For example, a hard disk drive may be connected to a computer's disk controller.Ms 420b-d each include two indicators of the primary criteria set, the DMs 420b-d are then further ranked based on the secondary criteria of I/O workload denoted by column 416 values. The higher the I/O workload, the higher the ranking of the proposed DM. Thus, in this example, assume X2>X3>X4 resulting in the ranking of 420b-d as in the example 400. Since DMs 420e-g do not meet any of the primary criteria, the DMs 420e-g are ranked lower than DMs 420a-d. DMs 420e-g are then ranked based on the secondary criteria of I/O workload denoted by column 416 values. The higher the I/O workload, the higher the ranking of the proposed DM. In this example, assume X5>X6>X7 thereby resulting in the ranking of 420e-g as in the example 400.\nThus, the proposed DMs 420a-g are first ranked based on the primary criteria and then, for a set of DMs equally ranked based on primary criteria, the set is then ranked based on the secondary criteria...",

The data storage devices 16a-16n may include one or more types of data storage devices such as, for example, one or more disk drives and/or one or more solid state drives (SSDs). An SSD is a data storage device that uses solid-state memory to store persistent data. An SSD using SRAM or DRAM, rather than flash memory, may also be referred to as a RAM drive. SSD may refer to solid state electronics devices as distinguished from electromechanical devices, such as hard drives, having moving parts. Flash memory-based SSDs (also referred to herein as “flash disk drives,” “flash storage drives”, or “flash drives”) are one type of SSD that contains no moving mechanical parts.\nThe flash devices may be constructed using nonvolatile semiconductor NAND"

"abstract": "A DAS system that implements RAID technology is provided in which an array of solid state disks (SSDs) that is external to the DAS controllers of the DAS system is used by the DAS controllers as WB cache memory for performing WB caching operations. Using the external SSD array as WB cache memory allows the DAS system to be fully cache coherent without significantly increasing the complexity of the DAS system and without increasing the amount of bandwidth that is utilized for performing caching operations. In addition, using the external SSD array as WB cache memory obviates the need to mirror DAS controllers.",

"passage": "the data is striped across multiple SSDs of the SSD array 110. If, for example, RAID level 1 is used, then when each of the DAS controllers 120 stores data in cache memory in the SSD array 110, the data is replicated, or mirrored, in multiple SSDs of the SSD array 110. If one of the SSDs of the SSD array 110 fails, the RAID level of technology that is implemented with the SSD array 110 will allow the data to be recovered. In this way, the DAS system 100 is fully cache coherent. The invention is not limited with respect to the RAID level that is used to ensure cache coherency for data that is cached in the cache memory of the SSD array 110.\nAlso, the SSD array 110 is typically, but not necessarily, partitioned into respective portions that are used by the respective DAS controllers 120. For example, assuming there are a total of N DAS controllers 120, where N is a positive integer that is equal to or greater than 1, the storage capacity of the SSD array 110 will be divided into N equal portions,"
