What technologies can autonomously assess the health of SSD and predict potential failures?

DSIAC staff reviewed DTIC and open-source information related to self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology (S.M.A.R.T. or SMART) embedded in modern computer storage media devices and their control electronics. Additionally, SSD reliability information and software utilities provided by the drive’s original equipment manufacturers and second parties for SSD health monitoring were analyzed. This information was was compiled into a report, along with conclusions and recommendations, that is available in the DTIC R&E Gateway.
