Some HP SSD Drives Will Fail at 32,768 Hours of Use

Quote from the article:

According to the advisory, the failure is unavoidable unless the new firmware is installed, and SSDs installed at the same time are likely to fail “nearly simultaneously.”

Some users experienced this scenario, with multiple vulnerable HP drives in a server collapsing at about the same time. One user on Reddit says that six of their SSDs died in 15 minutes. Another one writes:

“Just had eight VO0480JFDGT drives fail 2 weeks ago in one server. Each failed within minutes of each other. It took over 2 weeks of HPE dropping the ball until they figured it out.”
