Samsung new SSD hard drive is industry's biggest at 30 TB

Samsung has outed its latest SSD, the PM1643, with a whopping 30.72 terabytes (TB) of solid-state storage.

The new SSD is specifically created to fulfill the requirements of next-generation enterprise storage systems combining the technology such as 64-layer V-NAND and -bit 512-gigabit chips.

Production of the 30.72 TB SSD kicked off last month, though Samsung plans to add to the family later in 2018.

An organisation which works for child protection, revealed that almost 10 cases of child abuse a day is reported in Pakistan. People attend a funeral of a Pakistani girl who was raped and killed, in Kasur, Pakistan, Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018.

Not satisfied with a mere capacity increase, Samsung has also improved levels of performance with the PM1643. Each one of these 32 packages is made from 16 layers of 512 GB V-NAND chips. The company announced that it has largest Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) solid state drive (SSD) - the PM1643. That's a massive boost over what you get from a good SATA SSD these days, such as the current-gen Samsung 860 EVO, which maxes out at speeds of 550MB/s (read) and 520MB/s (write). "This represents almost 4X the random read performance, and some 3X the sequential read performance of typical 2.5" SATA SSDs.

"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 in a press statement. The new drive also features a 40GB DRAM, an upgraded and more efficient drive controller and associated software.The SSD is said to be able to hold about 5700 HD movies of 5GB each which is much more than anything in the industry is able to hold. This is the first time that TSV-applied DRAM is being used in an SSD. There's also metadata protection and data retention and recovery from power cuts. The MTBF figure is quoted at two million hours. "Furthermore, the SSD provides a robust endurance level of one full drive write per day (DWPD), which translates into writing 30.72TB of data every day over the five-year warranty period without failure". The prime target for these versions includes various market segments such as the government, financial services, healthcare, education, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, social media, business services, retail, and communications sectors.
