"... Oh, and those of you looking nervously at your RAIDs: "SSDs which were put into service at the same time will likely fail nearly simultaneously.""
... And that is another reason why you should have backups ;)
Because your SSD manufacturer is using a *signed* short integer as a time counter.
@thomas aaaaaaaaa! i mean i have backups but still ... aaaaaaaaaa!
@thomas soooo planned obsolescence?
(Imagine Beavis and Butthead voices)
Dev1: hey we need a countrer variable, not sure about the datatype though
Dev2: let's make it a signed 8 bit integer so we can sell more SSDs
Dev1+2: <manical Beavis and Butthead laughing>
@marlon sowieso. Aber das Beispiel zeigt doch ganz eindrucksvoll einen zweiten Grund, wieso ein RAID kein Backup ist.
Please give a reference for the signed short integer.
@Billie a signed short integer int16_t goes from −32.768 to 32.767, that is why I guess they’re using this data type ;-)
