While some of the flash array vendors struggle to even get 3D NAND into their arrays, Samsung and Seagate have unleashed next generation SSDs that simply topples the scales of measurement of these devices. Consider that some flash array vendors offer storage capacity of 35 TB in 3 rack units – Samsung is offering a 32 TB 2.5″ SSD and you get a feel for the magnitude of what is happening in this segment. Of course there are other aspects to be considered but it is a stunning development that offers a number of happy alternatives to storage engineers.
Samsung put their 32 TB SSD into a 2.5″ form factor while Seagate’s is in a 3.5″ form factor.
