Samsung has been recently in the news again. As reported by the company, Samsung Electronics has recently launched its 30.72 terabytes (TB) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface solid date drive (SSD) aimed at the enterprise.
To know more, this is the largest memory capacity ever for a single form factor storage device and has enough space to store 5,700 Full HD i.e. 1920×1080, or around 5GB movies.
There is also quite a rise in the performance from 15.36 TB SAS SSD. All courtesy of the 12Gb/s SAS interface, that it has random read and write speeds of up to 400,000 IOPS and 50,000 IOPS.
Also, it has sequential read and writes speeds of up to 2,100MB/s and 1,700 MB/s, more than triple that of its predecessor.
This 2.5-inch SSD lists 32 1TB V-NAND packages, an ultra-high speed controller, 10 4GB DRAM packages through silicon via (TSV) technology, and a new firmware.
The 1TB V-NAND packages were made by stacking 16 layers of 512Gb 3-bit V-NAND.
Further, the new controller integrates nine main and sub-controllers used in previous SSDs. The 4GB DRAM packages were made by stacking four layers of 8Gb DDR4.
The SSD would also provide one full drive write per day with a five-year warranty.
In software, it has metadata protection, data retention and recovery from sudden power failures, and a new error correction code (ECC) algorithm for reliability.
After this, Samsung would sequentially launch 15.36, 7,68, 3.84, and 1.92 TB versions under the PM1643 SAS SSD line-up, as well as 960GB and 800GB versions.
