Viking Technology launches ‘world’s highest-capacity’ 50TB SSD

A COMPANY CALLED Viking Technology has introduced a ‘world’s largest’ 50TB plain state expostulate (SSD).

The huge SSD, that a association claims is a highest-capacity expostulate of a kind shipping today, is partial of Viking’s Ultra High-Capacity (UHC) Silo series. Unsurprisingly, it’s not directed during a consumer market, and instead, comes housed in a customary 3.5in form factor and a 6Gbps SAS interface for deployment in information centres.

Viking has also launched a 25TB SSD, for those not so show-offy about their storage. 

Both of these Silo SSDs are built with power-efficiency in mind, and any has an idle energy expenditure turn of reduction than 10W, and active energy expenditure of 16W. According to a firm, a drives can assistance information centres to revoke their power, space, and cooling costs by adult to 80 per cent per terabyte.

The SSD twin also use Planar MLC NAND peep memory and offer claimed postulated review and write speeds of 500MB/s and 350MB/s, respectively, and postulated pointless review and write opening of adult to 60,000 IOPS and 10,000 IOPS.

Viking claims that SSDs can continue one expostulate write per day, each day, for 5 years. 

“There is no aloft ability SSD resolution accessible currently than a UHC-Silo SSD” pronounced Hamid Shokrgozar, boss of Viking Technology. “These drives capacitate information centre administrators to simply quit to SSD performance, along with a extensive boost in capacity. With space and cooling being vicious drivers for today’s information centres, these advantages are a diversion changer.”

No pricing sum have been done accessible yet, though when we cruise than a 1TB SSD costs around 300 quid, Viking’s 50TB charity ain’t going to be cheap. µ
