Samsung is breaking records once again in the solid state disk industry as manufacturer of the world's biggest SSDs, as regards storage capacity. Its recently launched PM1643 model packs 30TB in a 2.5in drive. The former largest market-released SSD, handling up to 16TB, was also made by the company.

According to The Verge, the new SSD's 30TB storage fits in 5,700 full-HD movies or 500 days of continuous video. Aside from capacity, it also boasts up to 400,000 and 50,000 IOPS read and write speeds, said to be four times faster than one of Samsung's regular 2.5in SSD.

Samsung also plans on broadening its SSD selections, many meeting 10TB and higher storage requirements. The company sees that 10TB and up will be the next SSD storage trend. Many manufacturers, like in China for instance, have been making lots of SSDs, although in the 10TB and less range. Samsung's move shows that SSD capacity can be stretched further without increasing drive dimensions and might be one that will entice other makers to follow the new trend.
