How Much for a 100 TB SSD, Sir? Nimbus Data Has Just Revealed the Answer

You may remember Nimbus Data's Exadrive, which was announced back in 2018 to claim the crown of world's densest SSD solution with a full 100 TB capacity crammed into the usual 3.5" form-factor and SATA connection as most (now) budget drives. At the time, pricing was available via a direct quote only. now, the company has changed that paradigm and is yelling straight at customers' wallets.

Cutting expectations short, and yet somehow supplanting them, Nimbus Data's Exadrives can be yours for the low, low price of $40,000 for a 100 TB version (a clean-looking $400 per TB). the 50 TB version is slightly saner when it comes to pricing: it only goes up to the $250 per TB barrier, costing a mundane $12,500. Of course, this is enterprise-grade MLC NAND providing read/write speeds rated at 500 & 460 MB/s, respectively, and up to 114,000/105,000 IOps reads/writes. Quick, fun napkin math right here: this 3.5" 100 TB density would be equivalent to no less than 69,444,444 3.5" floppy disks. Stack those floppies one on top of the other and you'd get a 229 km-high tower for your troubles. Oh how times have changed.
