Exclusive: The first 128TB SSDs will be launched in the coming months – and yes, this little-known rival will challenge Samsung, Solidigm and Kioxia for the storage crown

Businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to back up and manage the growing amounts of data they produce. The introduction of generative AI has further complicated matters, significantly challenging traditional storage methods.

128TB SSDs have been teased for a while now, with a number of companies discussing their future plans. For example, Huawei has announced that it is working on a 128TB SSD, but that product will only be available as part of its Exabyte-compatible OceanStor A800 range and isn’t expected to hit the market until 2025.
