Why ECC is so important on any system working with data you care about


Recommended Posts

Interesting to consider the IBM study that says that for every 256MB there is one bitflip a month.

If I simply extrapolate to my server RAM, that's more that 8/day.


It's probably more complicated than just a few multiplications as data density and manufacturing processes reach smaller transistor sizes.

But still probably a sensitive matter.


Same thing for SSDs and HDDs I guess.
