Seagate has just announced a gigantic 60TB SSD, but don't worry - your wallet is safe, as the company is targeting business clients with its huge SSD.

The storage giant has expanded its data center portfolio with the new 60TB drive, which connects over the SAS SSD standard. It can hold 12,000 DVDs or over 400 million photos, which is really just quite insane if you sit there and think this is a single SSD.

Seagate teases that you only need 17 of these 60TB drives to reach 1PB, with the company promising to offer 100TB drives in the future. Seagate's new 60TB SAS SSDs will come to market next year, but we don't know what the drive will look like, for now.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
