Seagate's 60TB SSD for businesses is world's largest

The bar for solid state drive (SSD) capacity has officially been set, and Seagate is the company that set it. At the 2016 Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CA, Seagate displayed its new 60TB Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD, the world’s highest capacity SSD. With capacity like that, one would only need 17 individual drives to reach 1 petabyte of capacity, Seagate noted in a photo it displayed on Twitter. The drive is housed in an HDD 3.5-inch form factor, and is “ideal for large storage arrays, active archives and read-intensive environments,” a display said.”
