As a result, reliability will suffer significantly as the expected life of an MLC SSD drive in a data center environment is typically no more than one year. This can result in catastrophic downtime if mission-critical data is placed on systems using MLC drives. Data centers will look for enterprise-class single-level cell (SLC) or eMLC drives instead.
