SanDisk vows: We'll have a 16TB SSD WHOPPER by 2016

Re: @John Robson

Ah, you're replacing new disks.

I have a stack of <1TB disks - and of course the extra PC (and controller card) which is used to control them all.

I'd also expect a large WORM SSD to have much more than a 5 year lifetime.

So I'd be dropping a PC, and ~10 older drives in favour of a single SSD - which would be effectively zero power - connected to another machine which is always on.

I think the potential price of W(O|F)RM SSD media might surprise you as well.
