Nimbus Data overtakes Samsung's record with 100TB SSD capacity


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. In other words, it's a digital warehouse that can store 200 million songs, 20,000 HD movies, or 2,000 iPhones worth of data. The drive is capable of reading and writing at speeds of 500MB per second.

Data centres can also reduce power, cooling, and rack space costs by 85% per terabyte, enabling more workloads to move to flash.

"Featuring the same 3.5" form factor and SATA interface used by hard drives, the ExaDrive DC100 is plug-and-play compatible with hundreds of storage and server platforms.

Last month Samsung revealed its latest record-breaking large capacity solid state drive, cramming 30 TB into a 2.5-inch drive format unit. Nimbus claims it will be competitive with similar heavyweight SSDs designed for data center usage, and underlines the potential savings to be made with the lower operating costs (thanks to the low power draw).
