The fact is that due to an error in the firmware, some models of the company's solid-state drives may fail after 40,000 hours of operation (4 years, 206 days, and 16 hours after commissioning). Worse, after a failure, if it did occur, neither the SSD itself nor the data on it can be restored.
According to HPE engineers, the earliest crashes can happen as early as October of this year, it all depends on when the problematic drives were manufactured and sold.
The list of drives affected by this problem can be seen below, the problem extends to SSDs with firmware up to HPD7. At the same time, HPE emphasizes that some models are sold separately, but others are included in other HPE products, including HPE ProLiant, Synergy, Apollo 4200, Synergy Storage Modules, D3000 Storage Enclosure and StoreEasy 1000 Storage.

It is worth noting that at the end of last year, a similar error was discovered in other SSD models manufactured by Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Then it turned out that the drives may fail after 32,768 hours of operation, if you do not install the update.
