The Why and How of SSD Overprovisioning

Read/Modify/Write cycles are extremely costly from a performance and endurance standpoint. To minimize them, SSDs keep a fixed amount of physical flash memory in reserve, called the Over Provisioning (OP) space that is not part of the device's logical address space.
