Nimbus Data has just announced the world's largest SSD that completely trumps the recent 30TB SSD from Samsung, with their new ExaDrive SSD that packs an insane 100TB. In fact, its creators claim it draws 85% less power per terabyte compared to its closest rivals, which can result in significant savings for customers.
The ExaDrive DC100 has been designed for data center duty, but it still offers a traditional SATA interface (along with SAS), and is available in a 3.5-inch form-factor.
On the performance front, the ExaDrive DC100 is rated for up to 100,000 random read (and write) IOPs, while sequential reads and writes a dialed in at 500MB/sec.

Losing three of their last five league games, Chelsea are in danger of missing out on the top four place altogether. But Albrighton believes the squad will now work hard to finish as high as possible in the Premier League.
The DC100's low-power (0.1 watts/TB) and portability also make it well-suited for edge and IoT applications. The DC100's equally balanced read/write performance makes it ideal for a wide variety of usage scenarios, including cloud infrastructure, big data, rich content and machine learning. "The ExaDrive DC100 meets these challenges for both data centre and edge applications, offering unmatched capacity in an ultra-low power design".
The new "ExaDrive DC series raises the bar in SSD power efficiency, density, and write endurance", Nimbus says, and the ExaDrive DC100 boasts over three times the capacity of the nearest competitor on the market. The company also mentions that there are embedded capacitors to protect buffered data in case of a sudden power loss.
The ExaDrive DC100 is being offered in both 50TB and 100TB versions. Nimbus says it is plug-and-play compatible with hundreds of storage and server platforms. The company has not given a price tag yet, but has said that it will be priced similar to business-grade SSDs on a per terabyte basis. The new ExaDrive DC will also come in a 50TB storage option, and both new SSD models are now sampling to "strategic customers" and will be generally available in summer 2018. This majorly helps to bring down the total cost of ownership (TCO).
