Seagate presents 60 TB SSD and more
Seagate has taken the opportunity to present two new solid-state drives at the on-going Flash Memory Summit event. Both of them are targeted at corporate users.
The first solid-state drive packs 60 TB of capacity (yes, that’s right). We do not have the model number but the SSD comes with a SAS interface and in the common 3.5-inch form factor. The second model is a SSD called Nytro XP7200. This one comes with 8 TB of capacity under the hood and support for NVMe. The drive houses four memory controllers and comes as a PCI-E expansion card. This drive will ship in Q4 2016. As to the 60 TB model – Seagate simply wants to show what it is capable of. This SSD will be in stores sometime next year.
The pricing of the new SSDs is unknown.
