Samsung has announced a record-breaking SSD drive, that is the industry's largest SAS SSD. The Korean company has begun production of the massive 30.72 terabyte (TB) solid state drive called the PM1643.
The drive uses a 12Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI interface. Samsung claims it can reach 400,000 read and 50,000 write random IOPS, with sequential read and write speeds of 2,100MB/s and 1,700MB/s, respectively.
The 2.5-inch disc is aimed at the enterprise market, and is a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface. It will be used in next-generation storage systems in the government, health care and education sectors.
"With our launch of the 30.72TB SSD, we are once again shattering the enterprise storage capacity barrier, and in the process, opening up new horizons for ultra-high capacity storage systems worldwide," said Jaesoo Han, executive vice president, Memory Sales & Marketing Team at Samsung Electronics.
There's no information on price or availability just yet. Samsung says that it started making the drives in January and that it will follow the 30TB unit with 15.36TB, 7.68TB, 3.84TB, 1.92TB, 960GB, and 800GB versions.
