You don't say for which purpose the SSDs are being used.
In your laptop?
As system disks in HPC compute nodes?
Journalling drives in a parallel filesystem?
Data storage drives in a parallel filesystem?
Over on the CEPH mailing list there are regular topics on choice of SSDs. I
would advise going over there and asking the same question.
Also you don't say how they are failing.
Are these consumer grade drives or data centre grade drives?
Consumer drives have much, much lower 'drive writes per day'
Two jobs ago I would have said the go-to data centre drives were Intel.
Also one comment specific to HPC. I found that SSD drives dont 'get sick'
like spinning drives,
ie you dont see syslog messages about blocks failing to be read/written.
They just fail.
Also two jobs ago I though that SMART checks were not picking up failing
I believe that you can monitor them if you choose the correct counters.
