  • Patent number: 11320878
    Abstract: A working temperature calculation method for a storage device of a server is provided. Firstly, n detected temperatures are converted into n transformed temperatures according to a composite temperature algorithm. If all of the n transformed temperatures are lower than a strengthen heat dissipation trigger temperature, the lowest temperature of the n transformed temperatures is set as a working temperature of the storage device. If at least one of the n transformed temperatures is higher than the strengthen heat dissipation trigger temperature, the highest temperature of the n transformed temperatures is set as the working temperature. When the storage device receives a temperature read command from the host, the storage device sends an information about the working temperature to the host, and the host controls a heat dissipation mode of the heat dissipation mechanism according to the working temperature.

  • Patent number: 11079965
    Abstract: A data processing method for a computer system is provided. The computer system includes a host and an open-channel solid state drive. The open-channel solid state drive is connected with the host. The data processing method includes the following steps. Firstly, plural block characteristic parameters of a specified block in a non-volatile memory of the open-channel solid state drive are collected. Then, the plural block characteristic parameters are inputted into a prediction function, so that a prediction value is acquired. If the prediction value exceeds a threshold value, a data in the specified block of the non-volatile memory is moved to a blank block of the non-volatile memory by the host.

  • Publication number: 20210117125
    Abstract: A server system includes at least one server. The server comprises a processing circuit and plural solid state drives. The plural solid state drives are connected with the processing circuit. A first solid state drive of the plural solid state drives includes a control circuit and a non-volatile memory. The control circuit is connected with the processing circuit. The non-volatile memory is connected with the control circuit. The control circuit includes a prediction model. The prediction model predicts a life time of the first solid state drive. If the prediction model predicts that the first solid state drive will be damaged in a specified time, the control circuit issues a critical warning signal to the processing circuit.
