[techradar]Incredible vinyl-like super SSDs could make hard disk drives obsolete

Quote:
Wafer-level SSD could offer major improvements all round

Modern hyperscale datacenters have infinite appetite for storage performance, capacity, and density, which is why multiple new SSD form-factors designed to maximize performance and capacity were introduced in the recent years.

But Kioxia believes that there is a faster and cheaper way to deliver desired solid-state storage solutions to cloud customers: wafer-level SSDs.

With capacities starting at around 50 TBs using current 3D QLC NAND, such devices could offer unbeatable performance.

That's what you need, QLC in your data center. Why didn't I think of sacrificing reliability for density in my data center?

I'm curious to how they came about this idea. "Hey guys I came to a revolutionary idea when eating pizza this weekend. I wanted to figure out how to eat more pizza without having to do it one piece at a time, so I just ate the whole thing, why don't we do the same thing with wafers?"

I thought this was old. The big customers have used wafers and large chips etc. for many things.

Can't wait for a 3.5" 40 platter SSD. Till then, better start saving, oh wait there is nothing to save from for most people.

the OP should include this part on the first post.

In a nutshell, Kioxia proposes to skip dicing, assembly, chip packaging, and SSD drive assembly, but use a whole wafer with 3D NAND instead.
why yes, lets go back to square one... err round one, round platters for storage!!

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Whole Wafer SSD sounds like a health food.

For server data that is static and only is only read such as games at a price lower than HDD's?? Excellent! My server is looking forward to it.

just take the whole wafer and stick it in the form factor, then stack them!



what happens when this logic starts to fail?


and like, hard drives are mostly obsolete right now if budget isn't an issue. or does flash not scale at enterprise levels?
