tsamsoniw writes "Companies adopting flash-based SSDs as a cornerstone to the data center storage systems are risking "massive data loss" due to power outages, according to a new study by researchers from the University of Ohio and HP Labs. In exposing 15 SSDs from five different vendors to power loss, researchers found that 13 suffered such failures as bit corruption, metadata corruption, and total device failure. The paper did not specify which vendors' drives were used."
