Nimbus Data launches 100TB SSD, servers house 100PB easily

20 March 2018

Nimbus Data, a popular data storage company based in America, has unveiled the ExaDrive DC100, which crams 100TB of 3D flash memory into a standard 3.5-inch SATA form factor, as announced in a company's blog post. In other words, it's a digital warehouse that can store 200 million songs, 20,000 HD movies, or 2,000 iPhones worth of data. The drive is capable of sequential read and write speeds of up to 500MB/s.

The ExaDrive DC100 has been designed for data center duty, but it still offers a traditional SATA interface (along with SAS), and is available in a 3.5-inch form-factor. In this case, the ExaDrive DC100 is said to draw on average 0.1W of power per terabyte compared to 0.5W for the Samsung PM1643. With a single rack of ExaDrive DC100 SSDs configured, a data center could have access to 100 petabytes of storage capacity.

On the performance front, the ExaDrive DC100 offers up to 100,000 random read and write IOPS and up to 500 MBps throughput.

The ExaDrive DC100 (which will also be offered in a 50TB flavor) has a five year warranty and is guaranteed for "unlimited endurance" during that period.

As a result, for the past decade the prevailing wisdom has been to pair a small SSD boot drive with a large mechanical drive to benefit from the boot times of the former without sacrificing the capacity of the latter. Nimbus Data says that that dollar-per-GB pricing will be comparable to existing MLC SSDs. Pricing will be similar to existing enterprise SSDs on a per terabyte basis while offering 85% lower operating costs. This TCO advantage factors in the superior endurance, balanced read/write performance, power savings, cooling savings, rack space savings, component reduction, and lower refresh costs.
