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