Shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic.

With TSVs and V-NAND technology, the SSD manufacturers could put out a 256 terabyte 2.5" drive today if they reaaally wanted to (the ~15 TB drive with stacks of 16 dies). It would be $100,000 or more, but it could be done, unlike HDD manufacturers.

The Platform reported on a prediction that flash arrays will be cheaper than disk arrays in 8-10 years. Swing the HAMR fast or buy an SSD manufacturer.
