Samsung Just Made World’s Biggest Hard Drive

Samsung just came up with 16TB hard drive

Samsung is the finally the producer of the world's biggest hard disk. The hard drive has 16TB of capacity.

It was reported at California's Flash Memory Summit just recently. reports, Samsung has introduced the PM1633a.

This is probably the name of the hard disk which is strange. Samsung is reportedly using a stacking technique for the memory within the standard-sized product to fit more memory than in past items.

As per the reports, the already greatest hard drives could fit around 10TB of memory. The product will most likely be used by businesses to be used in servers, according to Samsung.

The world's largest hard drive will be packed into a 2.5-inch case.

The hard disk is using Samsung's new 256GB NAND flash as the basis for the storage.

Ars Technica revealed much more. It noted; “To reach such an astonishing density, Samsung has managed to cram 48 layers of 3-bits-per-cell (TLC) 3D V-NAND into a single die. This is up from 24 layers in 2013 and then 36 layers in 2014.”

No pricing details have yet been revealed. But it is certain that it will be expensive.

It is also safe to assume that it will be sold primarily to enterprise customers for use in servers.

Let’s just wait until Samsung decides to break the news.
