Something to watch out for if you've been running Dell or HPE ssds for several years. Reminds me of a firmware bug on our Isilons which caused the arrays to go down after 127 days or something like that. The workaround being to reboot each node in a staggered timing before that happened, while we waited for firware fix.

Ouch that sucks. I did have a quiet moment of panic while searching through the article to find the affected drives for Dell systems. The product I work on uses Dell servers and 1.6TB SSDs. Turns out it was only Sandisk drives that have this issue on the Dell servers according to that article and we ship Toshiba SSDs.
