Nimbus Data has announced the 100-terabyte ExaDrive DC100, which it is calling the world’s largest solid state drive ever produced.
Boasting three times the capacity of its closest competitor, Nimbus Data says the ExaDrive DC100 also draws 85% less power.
To put its power in perspective, the company says that the ExaDrive DC100 provides enough flash capacity to store 20 million songs, 20,000 HD movies, or 2,000 iPhones worth of data “in a device small enough to fit in your back pocket.”
No release date or price information has been given for the ExaDrive DC100, but Nimbus says it will be available sometime over the summer.
The DC100 is plug-and-play and compatible with ‘hundreds of storage and server platforms,’ Nimbus says. The company adds that the DC100 can achieve up to 100,000 IOps (read or write) and up to 500 MBps throughput.
As well as the 100TB drive, there will also be a 50TB option. Visit the Nimbus website for more details.
