Fixstars unveils the world’s first 13TB solid state drive


Fixstars has announced the world’s first 13TB SSD, designed for the enterprise market.

The SSD-1300M offers more than twice the capacity offered by the previous highest capacity SSD on the market. Unfortunately, the huge capacity does come at a price. Although Fixstars hasn’t announced the final price just yet, it expects the drive to cost somewhere around $13,000.

The SATA 2.5” drive utilizes the SATA 3.0 interface and offers claimed sequential read speeds up to 580 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/s. It comes with a Toshiba NAND flash and a proprietary Fixstars controller that helps deliver sustained high transfer speeds over time, ensuring a constant read/write speed without frame dropping.

In addition to the SSD-1300M, Fixstars has also announced a 10TB SSD, the SSD-1000M. Both the drives can only be purchased directly from Fixstars. The company has no plans of selling the SSD-1300M via online retailers, which isn’t very surprising really.
