Toshiba has taken a step forward offering larger capacities for its solid-state drives with its new 7.68TB ZD6000 SSD.
The new drive is the highest-capacity SSD announced by Toshiba to date, up from its prior high of 4TB. However, it's still way behind Samsung, which started shipping a 15.36TB SSD earlier this year.
The 7.68TB SSD is a standard 2.5-inch drive that fits into NVMe storage slots based on PCI-Express 3.0. It has been dedigned to deliver high availability and efficiency to minimize I/O bottlenecks and accelerate applications and file systems while providing low latency. The mean time between failure of the drives is 2 million hours, Toshiba claims.
The ZD6000 SSDs also come in capacities starting at 800GB, but those will come at a later date.
