30TB

Of course, if I had won the lottery, I wouldn't worry about the how much, I'd just buy 12.

Of course, since I haven't won the lottery, I might think of getting me a 400GB version. Maybe.

Re: 30TB

At 2.72 GB/sec, you could only write the 30TB drive about 7.5 times per day, so offering it with 5 DWPD isn't much of a stretch!

Come on, El Reg

The one thing everyone wants to know, even if it's bullshit list prices, is how much this is going to cost. I realise it's easier just rephrasing a press release but please pretend to be actual journalists while doing so.

Re: Come on, El Reg

Our list price on the 15TB 2.5" SSD is around the £39k mark, and the 7.5TB is about £20k, so I expect this 30TB monster would be about £80k list price. Of course, those are list prices, what people actually pay for them is obviously much less, perhaps about 40-50% less usually
