Samsung launched the world’s largest-capacity SSD – the PM1633a, a 15.36TB drive – in March 2016.
The drive was first revealed at the 2015 Flash Memory Summit, and is based on a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface.
It is aimed at enterprise storage system users, and comes in a 2.5-inch form factor.
“The unprecedented 15.36TB of data storage on a single SSD is enabled by combining 512 of Samsung’s 256Gb V-NAND memory chips,” said Samsung.
Smaller versions are also available at a cheaper price, with the 7.68TB model selling for $5,700 (R78,800).
480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB, and 3.84TB models are also available.
