Samsung Launches World's Largest Capacity SSD with 30.72TB Storage Space


Two years ago, Samsung unveiled a massive 15.36TB SSD and now it has doubled that storage in a single drive – the PM1643. Samsung's PM1643 SSD is the successor to 15.36TB series, introduced by the company in March 2016.

Not only has the new Samsung drive dramatically increased in capacity, its performance has improved significantly as well. Further, each 1TB NAND flash package comprises of 16 stacked layers of 512Gb V-NAND chips. Samsung's new solid state drive (SSD) could eat 120 of those iPhones for breakfast. The drive offers 12GBps SAS interface with read and write speeds up to 400,000 IOPS (Input/Output Operations per Second) and sequential read and write speed of 2100MBps and 1700MBps respectively. Samsung touts that this is four-times the read speed and three-times the write speed of a typical 2.5-inch SATA SSD.

"With our launch of the 30.72TB SSD, we are once again shattering the enterprise storage capacity barrier, and in the process, opening up new horizons for ultra-high capacity storage systems worldwide", said Jaesoo Han, executive vice president, Memory Sales & Marketing Team at Samsung Electronics in a press statement.

Samsung has also brought in a new control architecture that integrates together nine controllers from the previous installment. For example, Samsung's own 960 Pro SSD boasts 3,500MB/s reads and 2,100MB/s writes. The drive also has Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology to interconnect 8GB DDR4 chips, creating 10 4GB TSV DRAM packages (totaling 40GB). It also provides support for metadata protection and data retention and recovery after a sudden power failure.

Importantly Samsung's error correction code (ECC) algorithm ensures high reliability and minimal storage maintenance.

The device is guaranteed for five years based on one full write per day, great for data centres, but we think it's important to keep reminding ourselves that this is transferrable tech - somewhere down the line, this could be in your computer at home. Mean time between failures (MTBF) is stated as 2,000,000 hours.

The company's goal is to target various market segments such as financial services, education, pharmaceutical, business services, communications sectors, government, healthcare, oil and gas, social media, and retail.
