    Re: Samsung launches 15.36TB SSD for enterprise customers

    Don't suppose Samsung would be willing to offer you a few of these for a potential competition?

    Seriously though, if only I had the superfluous cash, I'd love to replace my 4x 3TB drives (2 in PC, 2 in D-Link NAS) with either of the larger two of those drives.

    @Mark Tyson: just to confirm, is that 15.36TB (decimal) or TiB (binary)? Doesn't make much difference, just curious. I'm presuming it's probably decimal, as with all other drives I've ever seen.

    COSTS as much as a series of Titan Z's in Quad SLI setup with a questionable life span.

    I've been waiting for higher capacity SSD's to become available and affordable but the recent Google SSD data seems to suggest that age rather than usage of SSD's is the biggest factor in failure. That's not good news for long term backup requirements.

    Yeah it also costs as much as a new small family car and that's just as relevant as its price comparison to Titan Z's. Unless of course you spend all day, every day thinking about Titan Z's.

    It's targeting the enterprise. Most of the smart storage players now have flash aware storage systems that can handle some of the flash disadvantages.

    I predict silly capacity all flash storage arrays being on sale in the not too distant future. i.e. in excess of 6 PB per rack and about 45 Million IOPS. There will be big data stickers all over said rack as well I suspect.

    I'm curious as to when the whole TB and TiB thing became a thing because I grew up always knowing that a (prefix: kilo, mega, giga, tera, etc...)byte was 1024^X bytes I had never heard of said "binary" notation until just last year. Also I have never met a person in real life who does computer programming ever reference a 1024^X amount of bytes in the "binary" notation I have only seen them use the standard notation of KB, MB, GB, TB, etc... but still meant 1024^X.

    Really? I've seen this problem discussed for decades.

    The problem is that hard drive manufacturers use the correct definition of MB, GB, TB etc. but then operating systems report data sizes in MiB, GiB and TiB etc. but label them as MB, GB, TB etc.

    It's why a lot of people always complain that they buy a certain size hard drive and find it's smaller when formatted.
