Samsung Electronics presented plans for the development of solid disk ecosystems at the Samsung Tech Day 2022 Forum.
The plan is due to be implemented by 2030; the company ' s message does not indicate whether the product will be in mass production by that date, or only a prototype will be produced on the basis of which new products will be built.
The creation of such a chip will allow the company to produce solid storage devices with a capacity of up to 1 Pb. The prospect of creating such a large medium for information is quite tempting, with experts from Tech Radar, especially in the context of competition and the development of alternative storage facilities: quartz, ribbons, DNA and others.
More layers mean not only cheaper products, but also higher storage density. For example, now the largest storage capacity is the Nimbus Data solid storage device. A 3.5-inch model based on a 64-line chip allows 100 TB to be stored. This development shows that Samsung can achieve its goal: if this chip is folded to 1,024 layers, the capacity will exceed 1 PB.
In comparison, Seagate's hard drive manufacturer plans to increase its storage capacity to only 100 TB by 2030, and the company's devices are currently limited to a limit of 26 TB.
