With its announcement of a 16 Terabyte drive using three-dimensional Vertical NAND Flash memory (3D V-NAND). Samsung had a visible (and floating in its booth) proof point that flash memory is to the point where it is competitive with hard-drives for many applications. Anders Graham, SSD Product Marketing Manager, points out that one of the applications of this drive could be massive storage, as exemplified by Samsung’s announcement of a configuration of 48 of these 16 Terabyte drives in 2 rack units for a total of 792 Terabytes.
Befitting such futuristic announcements, Graham explains how they were able to leverage their presence at the Flash Memory Summit through the use of BeamPros from EventPresence.
