PLC NAND - The end of HDD recovery is near!

Mon Oct 07, 2019 4:10 pm

So this just happened: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019/09 ... each-cell/

PLC NAND (Penta Layer Cell) NAND memory which will now likely enable a single NAND chip of +1Tb size. Likely will be slow, but with a decent sized SLC cache, they could soon be producing +8Tb consumer SSDs with only a few chips on them.

This might be the last generation of HDDs being manufactured right now. It can't be long before comparable SSDs are less per Gb to manufacture.

I don't think the end is near...
My question is: will they be recoverable? Will they be reliable???

They never are

The way SSDs are trending, I'm betting not.

Yeap, that's the problem.

That's why I still think we will see HDD's for more time, because they still are reliable and the backups will be done for them.

Even when they are done manufacturing HDDs in mass, I'm sure we'll still be seeing them come in for some time. We still occasionally get an old 2Gb HDD in for recovery. Imagine how many more 500Gb spinners will be still showing up in 10 years.

But, I suspect we'll see a slowdown when the new ones aren't failing a month after they are sold (point in case, ST3000DM001)
