Samsung starts shipping the world’s largest capacity SSD


Samsung has started shipping the 16TB (well, okay, 15.36TB) SSD it showed off at the Flash Memory Summit in California last year. The company says the positively tiny, 2.5-inch drive has the largest capacity among all the SSDs in the world. It still didn’t mention how much one would cost you — not that you’d need one if you’re an ordinary user — most likely because it’s marketing the SSD as an enterprise product for obvious reasons. It boasts in its announcement post that since the product’s a 2.5-inch SSD, businesses can fit more drives in their server racks than if they use 3.5-inch drives.
