It is seen that memory manufacturers are developing a lot of work in the laboratory that were eager to teach, and has been open ban people from Seagate with its model SSD with 60TB, and start to bloom projects with capabilities such incredible memory as possible prices.
The reality is that many of these projects have their departure start sometime next year, they are not going to sell tomorrow, and well, which will buy can prepare a few thousand dollars, as are solutions devised initially for data centers and servers take advantage of its benefits – Facebook is one of those customers -. The last case that we bring today is the Toshiba unit 100TB.
The Japanese company says it is preparing storage units with up to 100TB typeQLC (Quad Level Cell Flash or QLC). What is that? Well, it’s complicated to explain with the information they share, but it is something like that each memory cell stores 4 bits of data, increasing storage density by a third, without getting into costly and novel 3D memory structures.
Memories for data centers, not for our PC
There is much information about memories and SSDs these days, the reason is that California is taking place at the Flash Memory Summit; there are companies like Intel / Micron, Samsung, SK Hynix, Seagate, Lenovo or your Project Spark. In the event you can see that Micron and Samsung are betting on a different Toshiba path, that of 3D NAND memories.

As we have in The Register, in the event a working prototype with a PCIe interface and 100TB of memory is taught, you could read it at a rate of 3GB per second – in sequence – and you could write to 1GB per second, in the same way (read: 50,000 IOPS, writing: 14.000 IOPS).
Another of its virtues is necessary consumption – 9W -to move this amount of data, which would be equivalent to a current disc format 8TB 3.5 inches. Standby consumption could be lowered to 100 mWatts, while the unit would be compared 8W.
