JEDEC

JEDEC is an industry group that develops open standards for microelectronics. JEDEC, which originally stood for Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council, is now known as the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association.

JEDEC is currently involved in developing endurance standards for consumer and enterprise flash memory.  In 2010, JEDEC announced the publication of JESD218 Solid-State Drive (SSD) Requirements and Endurance Test Method, which defines the conditions of use and corresponding endurance verification requirements for each class of solid state drives defined in the standard.  JESD218 also creates an SSD Endurance Rating that represents the number of terabytes written by a host to the SSD. Because workloads are expected to change as enterprise applications evolve, they are described in a separate, complementary standard: JESD219 Solid-State Drive Endurance Workloads.
