Although this falls within the personal appreciation, almost more than I would trust those 48TB of Lenovo than the 60TB of Seagate, but records are there to overcome and the Chinese company so far has not risen to that level. In fact, even you can buy, we have to wait to mid next year to see him become a real product year.
We are faced with a product that seeks to satisfy the “normal” consumer. As Seagate solution, they are designed to improve the professional sector units, offering speed and storage servers. Prices and prove: Samsung showed us a 16TB unit, which quickly rose from $10000.
With no mechanisms in these discs, there may be considerable freedom when shaping such disks, but to fit in standard locations are still playing with known formats: the physical format of the unit Lenovo is which we can be found in the space of two 2.5-inch drives.
The draft Seagate able to put the 60TB in a 3.5-inch drive, while Samsung said 16TB fits into a 2.5-inch SSD. In the next picture, with hard drives, ye can get an idea of the sizes of these two formats:
Lenovo solution would take a couple of units as small (2.5 inch), while Seagate is the size of the large (3.5 inches)
All that you have is within the laboratories of a program called Project Spark, who heads Lenovo, and has plenty of companies waiting to get cut while collaborating in its development. We talk about companies like Seagate above, also Toshiba, NxGn Data, or Amphenol.
Lenovo and its partners are seeking ways to better performance and energy consumption of multiple SSDs working on the same plate, always thinking about its use in servers. This week taught in the Flash Memory Summit California DRAM prototype module with 6TB.
At the end of this evolution is good for everyone, technologies and manufacturing capabilities end up affecting all levels and sizes and prices will fall. Now we can buy 512GB disks so we asked for one of 128GB a year ago.

Samsung leads the SSD market
Although Samsung is not the one with the largest option, with that unit 16TB, also put in hand in the fire that is the fastest going to produce it, and in greater quantity, so that also counts in this race.
Samsung itself boasted a few days, which is the leading producer of SSDs ago, achieving a market share of 34% as sales achieved in the first quarter: growth is important, in the fourth quarter of 2015 had 22 %.
Sales leads both domestically, as in that sector servers. If we look at the catalog, we realize that we have an option for every case: more than 18 families in SSD, with more than 100 variants.Tags: Lenovo 48TB, SSD
