Worldâs largest capability 100TB SSD launched by Nimbus Information
Final month, Samsung Electronics unveiled the worldâs largest 30.72TB capacity SSD (solid-state-drive), promising a brand new period of velocity and cupboard space. Now, Nimbus Information, pioneer in flash reminiscence options, introduced its new âExaDriveÂ DC100â, a 100TB SSD, the very best capability SSD ever produced that gives greater than 3 times the storage capability of its closest competitor, claims the corporate.
Mainly, optimized for capability and effectivity, Nimbus Information’s DC100 is a 3.5-inch type issue and has a SATA interface utilized by onerous drives, which implies it could work as a plug-and-play appropriate with tons of of storage and server platforms. The SSD makes use of Nimbusâs multi-processor structure and 3D NAND, which gives sufficient capability to retailer 20 million songs, 20,000 HD films or 2,000 iPhones of information in a tool that’s âsufficiently small to slot in your again pocket.â
The SSD mannequin additionally presents up 500MB/s of sequential learn and write throughput and as much as 100,000 random learn and write IOps (enter/output operations per second). In response to Nimbus Information, this efficiency additionally helps enhance CPU efficiency by “50 p.c or extra.”
âThe discharge of such a excessive capability flash machine that’s totally appropriate with HDD type components opens up the chance to turbo cost large information platforms whereas on the identical time bettering reliability, considerably lowering machine depend, rising information mobility, and reducing the TCO of multi-PB scale storage platforms,â mentioned Eric Burgener, analysis vp of Storage at IDC. âGadgets of this class will enable flash to cost-effectively penetrate a broader set of use instances exterior of tier Zero and tier 1 functions.â
The DC100 mannequin consumes solely 0.1 watts per TB (terabyte), which is 80-90% decrease than different competing large-capacity SSDs. This makes it applicable for edge and IoT functions. These enhancements scale back complete value of possession per TB by 42% in comparison with competing enterprise SSDs, serving to speed up flash reminiscence adoption in each cloud infrastructure and edge computing.
âAs flash reminiscence costs decline, capability, vitality effectivity, and density will grow to be the important drivers of value discount and aggressive benefit,â acknowledged Thomas Isakovich, CEO and founding father of Nimbus Information. âThe ExaDrive DC100 meets these challenges for each information heart and edge functions, providing unmatched capability in an ultra-low energy design.â
Nimbus Information mentioned its 100TB DC100 mannequin might be priced at par with the SSD lineup for enterprise and can begin transport in summer time 2018.Â Nimbus will even supply a lesser 50TB capability mannequin. The DC100 is protected by a 5-year guaranteeÂ protecting an infinite DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day) and can presently not be offered for shopper use.
