Samsung Unveils 30.72TB Enterprise SSD

Today Samsung announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s largest capacity SAS solid state drive – the PM1643 – for use in next-generation enterprise storage systems. Leveraging Samsung’s latest V-NAND technology with 64-layer, 3-bit 512-gigabit chips, the 30.72 terabyte drive delivers twice the capacity and performance of the previous 15.36TB high-capacity lineup introduced in March 2016. “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. “Samsung will continue to move aggressively in meeting the shifting demand toward SSDs over 10TB and at the same time, accelerating adoption of our trail-blazing storage solutions in a new age of enterprise systems.”
