    $400/TB
    So, it's aimed at commercial / enterprise level only then. Shame there isn't really a consumer level drive with these capacities for a reasonable price per TB.

    I'll take 12 of the 100TB!

    50Tb would be nice, I could turn my server into a NUC build rather than an iTX build..

    I wonder what is failure rate for these drives

    Well, 5 years ago 1TB was about $400 now it's around $90 or so.

    That's no guarantee of future costs or future capacities though. The biggest contributor to capacity has been even higher multi-cell which is a pretty direct trade-off versus endurance. Not sure how many more layers they can add and of course, more layers means a longer (slower) process.

    As for prices? Well nobody really knows. We know that silicon fabs costs $billions to make so have to be run for long term returns. However, there have been times in the past where a price war has had them all making losses for sometimes a few years at a time.

    Apparently Micron's costs and efficiency are rather low, while Samsung's are super efficient so they could go for a price war. However, with the American's being super protectionist that's probably not a good idea. So no below cost selling any time soon.

    Re: 6.0 Gbps interface

    It's really a shame that the industry as a whole has decided
    to freeze SATA 6G specs. Back in 2012 at the Storage Developer
    Conference, we suggested that a "SATA-IV" standard should
    adopt the 128b/130b "jumbo frame" and increase the clock rate
    at least to 8G to match the PCIe 3.0 clock rate.

    The general idea was to "sync" chipsets with storage subsystems,
    which came true for NVMe storage, but NOT for SATA storage.

    Now that PCIe 4.0 is the current standard, a "SATA-IV" standard
    should also sync with the 16G clock of that standard.

    The net result of freezing the SATA spec is that
    doing I/O with these ExaDrives is like sipping
    an ocean thru a drinking straw.
