Samsung has announced the production of a 32TB Solid-State Drives
The issue of space is known to limit most users of the cutting-edge technology of phone devices. Samsung has made many advances in combating the matter, and one of the solutions was the previous production in March 2016 of an SSD drive whose capacity is 16 terabytes (which can accommodate a maximum of 15.36TB worth of data).
These efforts did not go unnoticed as many people were happy and thrilled with the production of this high capacity drive that was formerly known at the time. However, back to the present now, Samsung has gone a notch further, and on 20th February 2018, they announced that they had started the production of 32-terabyte (rounded off from 30.72TB) Solid-State Disks.
This capacity is double the previous highest capacity produced back in 2016. This new drive is said to have a 64-layer, 3-bit 512-gigabit (Gb) processors and uses V-NAND technology. The V-NAND is the latest technology of Samsung that allows the data stored in the drive to be retained even when there is no electric current involved.
This drive that will make storage of exactly 30.72TB worth of data possible and companies that seek more storage options for their data will be pleased. The likes of companies that deal with financial records, healthcare information, exploration of oil and gas, pharmaceutical customer and product information, retail and wholesale product manufacturing industries and many other organizations even including the government will see the usefulness of this mega drive.
Another important feature of this 32TB drive (also dubbed as the PM1643) is the modification of the speed of its operations. Samsung has advanced the technology on the performance of this drive to be twice as much as the previous high-capacity drive. The speed performance of this mega drive is as follows:
- Random read speed is about 400,000 IOPS, and Random write speed is up to 50,000 IOPS.
- Sequential read speed is 2,100MB/s, and Sequential write speed is around 1,700 MB/s.
