It is called Samsung PM1633a and is the largest capacity SSD drive ever made. It can store up to 16TB of data through 3D NAND flash memory (NAND-V) that was developed on 48 levels stacked on each other with each layer formed by MLC cells. It is a 2.5 inch SSD and costs whopping 5000 dollars and is clearly designed for companies and business-oriented users who might be interested in super fast storage and are willing to pay price for that.
It is developed using 3D NAND flash memory (NAND-V) to 256 Gigabit, developed on 48 levels stacked on each other. It is said to be about 30 percent more efficient than the V-Gigabit 128 NAND and 1000 times faster than 256 gigabit. We wish to clarify that Samsung is not the only company involved in the development of high-capacity SSDs.
Toshiba and SanDisk recently announced to be well advanced in the production of flash memory with similar capacities. Until a few years ago it was difficult, indeed impossible, to find solid state drives can store more than a few hundred gigabytes of data but Samsung, which is a leader in this area, has always set the pace. And the ultimate solution is an example, as the Korean company’s new SSD can hold up to 16 terabytes.
