Seagate Demos 60TB SSD

Seagate demonstrated a 60 terabyte (TB) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) solid-state-drive (SSD) — the largest SSD to date — at this week's Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California.

The 60TB SAS SSD uses the standard 3.5 inch storage form factor, eliminating the added step of separating out different types of data for near-term availability versus long-term storage. Seagate said it anticipates increasing the capacity to 100TB or more in the near future in this same form factor.

Seagate also announced its 8TB Nytro XP7200 NVMe SSD aimed at the hyperscale needs of today’s data centers. It features a single PCIe interface for high-speed data transfers and four separate controllers, providing processing power up to four times faster than comparable drives, but without the higher cost, power levels and latency required from a PCIe switch or bridge. Applications can process more transactions faster using the industry’s highest bandwidth through one PCIe slot.

Future availability of the 60TB SAS SSD, currently a demonstration technology, is anticipated for some time in 2017.

“Given the demands on today’s data centers, optimal technologies are those that can accommodate an immense amount of data as needed—and without taking up too much space. As such, we are constantly seeking new ways to provide the highest density possible in our all-flash data center configurations,” said Mike Vildibill, vice president, Advanced Technologies and Big Data, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “Seagate’s new 60TB SAS SSD offers an exciting possibility for customers to achieve higher server storage performance and capacity configurations never seen before.”
