Data storage company, Nimbus Data, has announced the ExaDrive DC100, an SSD with the largest storage capacity to date at 100TB. Primarily designed for data center use, the ExaDrive DC100 is also claimed to be the most energy efficient SSD in the world, consuming only an 1/8th of the power that is usually consumed by current SSDs.
Specs-wise, the ExaDrive DC100 has sequential read and write speeds of 500MB/s, 4K read and write speeds of up to 100,000 IOPS, and is controlled via a 3D NAND controller. Nimbus Data is also providing the SSD with a five year warranty.
To give you an idea of just how massive 100TB is; you could store as many as 20,000 Full HD movies, up to 20 million songs in FLAC format on it, and you’d still have some space leftover.
There’s no official pricing for the SSD yet, but Nimbus Data is saying that the company will make it available sometime during the second or third quarter of 2018, and that it will have “prices comparable to other business-grade SSD on a per-terabyte-basis.”
