    I saw a reference to “tens of thousands of dollars”. Encouraging to see though.

    I would love one of those just "because", but I'm sure my bank manager wouldn't be very happy :)

    A 1TB SATA SSD is about ~$250.

    So, if this 100TB SSD cost $25000 or less. IMO, it's actually a reasonable price :rolleyes:

    I know, when buying 100 SSD, we don't need to pay retail price. But when we want to combine 100 SDD into 1 SSD but still has the same total capacity. That's another matter.

    I'll run the tests with 4 of these in an internal RAID-0 if anyone wants to provide!

    $250 for 1TB is consumer-grade, they mention "enterprise" comparable pricing, so that's probably closer to $600-800 for 1TB. Agreed that if someone needs a ton of storage in a small space even if $40-50K it will fill a niche.

    It's also reasonable to get two, because obviously you'd need to backup the first one.

    Think that less than 20 years ago a 10GB hard drive was something futuristic...

    http://www.cnn.com/TECH/computing/9901/21/honkin.idg/index.html

    "The top size of the most expensive desktop drives could easily be nearly two times the 16.8GB that IBM reached in early 1998 with its DeskStar 16GP drive. "We're looking at a 30GB drive by the time the year 2000 rolls around, and for $200," predicts Martin Reynolds, another Gartner Group analyst."

    Imagine 20 years from now - 100TB might be entry level...
