Announced on Tuesday, the drive targets enterprise systems, and it’s built on Samsung’s 512Gb V-NAND tech. The company says it offers the “industry-first 1TB NAND flash package, 40GB of DRAM, new controller,” and new software, which will allow it to store some 5,700 5GB movies and only fail every two million hours. ou probably don’t need 30.72TB of fast SSD data at home, but plenty of companies around the world will.

The drive offers sequential read and write speeds of up to 2,100MB/s and 1,700MB/s, respectively, which is three times faster than a typical 2.5-inch SSD. Random read and write speeds are at 400,000 IOPS and 50,000 IOPS, or four times the performance of a regular SSD drive. The price for the 30.72TB SSD was not announced.

Can you remember when computers had 40 Megabyte hard drives

My first HDD was a 20 MB 8 bit hardcard for my Tandy 1000SL!

Heh, the first one I ever got to work on was five gigabytes and about the size of a clothes washer (the cabinet housing it, that is). The hd itself was about 18 - 20 inches across and probably (IIRC) two feet high. High tech stuff back then.

I remember those too! My very first computer was a Timex Sinclair 1000 that used a cassette player to store data on cassette tapes. I bought it new in a drug store (Osco Drug IIRC). Man, those were fun and exciting days!

My first college laptop (1993) was a used Zenith with a 10 megabyte hard drive.

I had the Commodore 64. Does that garnish any props?

I have declared to never buy another samsung product again. After this sh!tty phone and reading reviews on their reefers and tv's they can suck an egg. Either pathetic manufacturing/design or simple planned obsolescence backed up by zer0-pathetic customer service gives them an F-

Mine was a commadore 128. I had a floppy reader with it also.
At work it was PDP 8s

And the fixed platter hard disk for the PDP-8 was 32K words (12 bits each, or 48k byte equivalent). It was pretty darn wonderful compared to paper tape. The first 5-1/2 inch hard disk, used in PCs, was 5 megabytes.
