World's Largest SSD is now 100TB
« on: March 19, 2018, 10:13:30 pm »
SSD storage is usually pretty small when compared to the mechanical counterpart, but that is changing with the latest drive from Nimbus Data. The drive is the ExaDrive DC100 and they manage to cram an incredible 100TB of data into a 3.5-inch drive. It won't fit in your laptop, and it certainly won't fit into many budgets at this time. The price isn't available, but it will be into the "tens of thousands of dollars". Still, it kind of makes me want to see how long it would take to fill up. Four of these in a NAS would be pretty epic.

   As you might guess, this is intended for servers where capacity takes priority over everything else, including performance (the 500MB/sec is nothing to write home about). A data center could hold 100 petabytes of data in a single rack instead of needing large swaths of server room space. That's helpful for cloud services, AI and other technologies that may need massive amounts of data.Source: Engadget
