32 TB Intel P4500 SSD Sets World Record For Storage Density

But It Is A Huge Ruler

Intel is trying to bring innovation into the storage sector. First, we got Optane memory, then Intel announced the inexpensive M.2 600 series SSDs that are faster than the SATA SSDs on the market and now we have a storage density record-setting SSD from Intel. The Intel P4500 SSD comes with 32 TB of storage and that is impressive on its own.

You must be thinking this is going to be pretty expensive, I am not going to buy this so why should I even be bothered? Well, you are wrong. You see, the Intel P4500 SSD is not meant for the general consumer but it still does affect everyone that is part of the digital world. Let’s face it, everyone is part of the digital space in one way or another.

The Intel P4500 SSD has a very high storage density and that is a good thing. This storage is going to be used in servers and if you are using the cloud then you are going to be using the Intel P4500 SSD as well. So, while you might not be buying it yourself, you are going to be affected by it, one way or another. Cloud storage is becoming common and as it becomes the norm, that is where the Intel P4500 SSD comes into play and why we need it.

If you are a gamer then you use cloud saves to store game files wherever you go so that you can log into a device and start playing where you left off at work. This is where the Intel P4500 SSD will be helping you out, behind the scenes even if you do not know it. The ruler form factor might be different but there is a reason for that as well. Due to the shape and design of the Intel P4500 SSD, you can fit 32 of these into a single server slot and a single slot will have a Petabyte of storage. That is a lot of storage if you think about it.

If you need context, then think of it this way, if you were to digitize the entire US Library of Congress, the Intel P4500 SSD would be able to hold three times that data.
