    ExaDrive is 1.1k$ less.
    Anyway its good to see some more big SSDs, maybe it will push a little price drop of large HDDs.

    Any interesting new SSDs will take sales from HDDs, making HDD volume lower and hence pushing up their price.


    I must say the storage density of these is rather nice. With a 24 bay 2U server that's a third of a petabyte, and I suspect if you are buying by the petabyte you could negotiate a discount on the SSDs.

    That's what I'm thinking, that and pricing of Solid State stuff seems to hit a somewhat exponential curve at higher densities so I'm not surprised at the expense.

    But being able to squash that much storage into a 2u chassis while maintaining a standard SAS/Sata backplane without having to migrate to something insane for NvME storage arrays is a boon.

    Might have to upgrade from a 6gbps LSI card to a 12gbps though to maintain performance

    One of these drives per blade on a blade server could make one heck of a Ceph storage pool as well. If they still make blade servers, they were all the rage a while back but not heard of any recently.

    Blade servers are always in the wings, the big thing with blades is using them alongside Citrix to provide a full fat desktop to those that need it. In our org, we were planning on using a 9 unit blade to run a cluster of Logpoint data analysis systems to distribute the event workload from multiple customers.

    You can pick up Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge blades for quite cheap now!

    Although one of these drives is the same price as the entire unit xD

    lol, that was sort of my thinking: If you drop 4 grand on an SSD, then each SSD may as well have a cheap server plugged onto it, they aren't such a significant cost.

    But think of the economies of scale for flash storage once bulk storage providers start buying it!
