Worst case power dissipation in the form of heat determines if the system space and cooling methods or the end products are adequate to keep all the components cool enough for reliable operation. Whether it is a mechanical hard-disk drive or solid state drive, the memory devices generate their own heat dissipation plus the heat from the power supplies for the HDD and SSD. Aside from the power supply being cool enough, reliable power supplies for storage means maintaining output regulation during dynamic load transients of the memory and providing high level of signal-to-noise to decrease read-write errors for the memory device.
