What issues may I face in using an SSD to write streaming data. The data will be at about 30Mbps and I don't want to drop any of the data. There won't be an operating system but I'll be using my own interface.
How can I get the sustained write speed; not the average nor the peak but the speed at which no data will be lost. I can put a buffer in front of the SSD to allow for temporary delays but how big does it need to be?
Once the drive is full I will need to reformat or erase it (after reading the data).
The application is therefore different to a computer or server application.
You will not be faced with any problems, since the sustained write speed of the SSD is higher than your datarate. Plus there already is a buffer inside the SSD to facilitate the writing process or the reading process.
So, if you really feel that it might be a problem, I'd suggest going in for a higher value SSD.
