Lenovo crams 48TB of SSD storage on a board
#Lenovo is developing an #SSD storage board with a monstrous 48TB capacity, and the company plans to release it by the middle of next year. The board is basically a collection of high-capacity SSDs. It provides an efficient way of cramming more SSD storage into computer slots, instead of using individual drives.
The 48TB storage capacity will fit in a space for two standard 2.5-inch storage drives. That’s significantly more storage than what’s currently available in two #Samsung PM1633A SSDs, which are the largest-capacity SSDs — at 15.36TB — and will fit in the same slots.
Lenovo, known more as a PC and mobile device maker than a storage company, is developing the board in its research labs. Companies like #Seagate, #Toshiba, #NxGn Data and Amphenol are helping Lenovo develop the technology, part of a program called Project Spark.
