Samsung Squeezes 30TB Into a 2.5-Inch SSD

Samsung Squeezes 30TB Into a 2.5-Inch SSD

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. These 1TB packages can theoretically store 5,700 5GB, full HD movie files.

Not satisfied with a mere capacity increase, Samsung has also improved levels of performance with the PM1643. It is the successor to the 15.36TB enterprise SSD that was announced in March 2016.

If you need ultra-fast storage for your computing needs, the obvious solution is, of course, a solid state drive (SSD). Samsung's latest breakthrough technology is created by combining 32 of Samsung's newest 1TB NAND flash packages. Utilizing a 12Gb/s SAS interface, the PM1643 attains random read speeds of up to 400,000 IOPS, and random write speeds of up to 50,000 IOPS. Sequential read and write speeds clock in at 2,100MB/sec and 1,700MB/sec respectively.

According to Samsung, the new drive performs approximately four times better than a typical SATA SSD; as these drives are focussed on the enterprise, the company also noted that they offer a mean time between failures (MTBF) of two million hours.

The crash will be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration. The National Park Service and Hualapai Nation authorities did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Meanwhile, the pricing and availability details of the PM1643 are not yet known, but Samsung has already started manufacturing the first batches of the 30.72TB SSD model and is planning to expand its range of SAS SSDs later this year with 15.36TB, 7.68TB, 3.84TB, 1.92TB, 960GB and 800GB versions launching very soon.

Samsung was able to make these advances in performance and capacity thanks to 9 controllers that have been integrated into a single package (for greater space efficiency on the SSD) and Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology to provide a faster interconnect for the 40GB of DRAM.

The drive also comes with a new controller that integrates nine main and sub controllers used in previous SSDs.

On the software front, the SSD has an error correction code (ECC) algorithm that is claimed to ensure high reliability and minimal storage maintenance. The SSD comes with an endurance level of one full drive write per day (DWPD) that makes it a flawless option to write 30.72TB of data every single day over the five-year warranty period.
