Here's what I was trying to get at. (If I can do the arithmetic correctly. )Squeeze data through sata? Is 580MB/s (reads) not enough? I'm not sure what would be squeezed with more capacity as throughput doesn't change.
Enterprise is entirely outside my realm of experience. I would not be surprised to know that there are use cases where this drive would be better than any other existing drive. I guess I should phrased that as a question. Are there use cases for which this drive is not suitable due to the SATA interface speed?Since this is enterprise, the point here is scaling and a small footprint. How many 1TB SSDs would I need for a petabyte? How many boxes would that take on my floor...more power use...etc.
A lot of research is being done into memory technologies for a reason, and we have a lot left to squeeze out of it. Mechanical drives will be extinct unless an amazing breakthrough increases capacity significantly.Sure. Easy to think that when the price isn't known. I'm sure the $/GB is through the roof. That said, I've contacted them for a quote on the 13TB version.
Id say the nail is on the wood with the hammer ready to strike.... not that anyone said its a nail in the coffin, just that it is being phased out, and, it is.Hardly the nail in the HDD coffin.
