SSD Endurance

SSD Endurance

SSD manufacturers express the durability or endurance of their lives most commonly in 2 ways.

  • Terabytes Written (TBW)
  • Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD)

Both are basically different methods to express the same thing. DWPD tells us how many times the drive can be overwritten entirely, every day, within its usable life (warranty period) - without failing.

At ZebraHost, we offer enterprise-level SSDs with the following DWPD specs (specs subject to change):

960 GB 3 DWPD

800 GB 10 DWPD

1.2 TB 10 DWPD
