Viking Technology is shipping a 50TB SAS SSD.
Yes, you read that right.
The UHC-Silo SSD is claimed to be the highest-capacity drive of its kind shipping today, and has a 3.5-inch form factor that comes in two capacity points – 25 and 50TB.
It uses planar SK Hynix MLC (2 bits/cell) flash and not the 3D TLC (3bits/cell) NAND chips with higher capacities available today.
There is a dual-port SAS 2.x 6Gbps interface and its 4KB read/write IOPS rating is up to 60,000/15,000.
The sequential (256KB) read/write bandwidth is up to 500/350 MBps – not particularly impressive in these NVMe interface days where GBps ratings are common, but this is a capacity-focussed drive.
