The Nimbus Data ExaDrive DC100 SSD Has the Largest Storage at 100TB

Luckily for us Nimbus Data is satisfying our lust for all things SSD with a positively massive new offering: the company's new ExaDrive DC100 offers a mind-blowing 100TB of storage space.

"It's worth noting that, although the ExaDrive is more than three times larger than its closest competitor in terms of capacity, the Samsung PM1643 uses the smaller 2.5" form factor, so you can't directly compare the two.

"These innovations reduce total cost of ownership per terabyte by 42% compared to competing enterprise SSDs, helping accelerate flash memory adoption in both cloud infrastructure and edge computing", explains Nimbus Data. A data center can technically hold 100 petabytes of data in a single rack, so there won't be a need for huge space in server rooms.

The Palestinian leader's strong words appear to foreshadow a new pressure campaign against Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip. Abbas's "verbal attack on US Ambassador David Friedman says it all", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

In terms of performance, the DC100 can achieve 100,000 input/output operations per second (read or write) and transfer speeds of up to 500MBps.

It was only last month when Samsung launched the world's highest capacity SSD PM1643 with a storage capacity of 30TB. "Devices of this class will allow flash to cost-effectively penetrate a broader set of use cases outside of tier 0 and tier 1 applications". Encryption, multiple ECC processors, and a secure-erase feature ensure data security. It is now sampling to strategic customers and will be generally available in summer 2018. The DC100 offers a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 2.5 million hours. It's suggested the cost will be similar to current enterprise SSDs on a per terabyte basis, which is code for "it will be extraordinarily expensive", at least initially. This is a server drive through and through, but that doesn't make its the prospect of its 100TB of 3D NAND flash memory any less salivating. According to Nimbus Data, this performance also helps improve CPU performance by "50 percent or more".
