Hard drives have been offering us decades of quiet and efficient service. But soon they will be replaced by the SSD disks and their variants. Hence, the American multinational corporation and technology company Intel recently launched its new SSD that can store up to 300,00 HD movies.
Intel’s New 1,000 TB SSD Stores Up To 300,000 HD Movies
Hard drives have been offering us decades of quiet and efficient service. But soon they will be replaced by the SSD disks and their variants. If they have not already done so, it is because they still carry a couple of handicaps: their storage capacity, and their price.
Intel has been struggling to overcome the first limitation by creating a new rule-shaped SSD disk format, which can store 1 Petabyte data, that is 1000 Terabytes or 1,000,000 GB. That’s equivalent to 300,000 hours of HD video, which a person would take 70 years to watch.
In the opening image of the news, you can see the new format rule for Intel SSDs. Do not expect to find it in stores, because at the moment it will only be available for data centers of Internet providers. If a 1 TB SSD drive costs $358, imagine what can be worth a 1000TB with a much more advanced technology.
The SSD drives are much faster, heat up less and are quieter than conventional hard drives, but have less capacity and are expensive. You can see how they work in this video:-
The data centers that use hundreds, even thousands of servers to store Web pages and other content from Internet providers, continue to rely on conventional hard drives precisely because they have more capacity and are much cheaper.
Intel wants to change this concept with the new SSD of Regla format, that as we have mentioned can store up to 1 Petabyte, that is to say, 1000 TB, in a single rack or storage connector. They are composed of NAND chips and have no moving parts, so just put them in a row to increase storage, hence the format rule of this SSD.
Intel has not revealed data such as its length, the type of connection to the server or the price, although we do know that this format rule can be applied to Intel Optane technologies, and to Intel 3D NAND SSD or not. However, this 1000TB SSD will be available “very soon”.
