Samsung's commercially available SSDs have already hit the 1TB mark but the company is demonstrating that it can scale up storage to impressive levels. It recently showed off its fourth-generation V-NAND technology that has enabled Samsung to produce a 2.5-inch solid state drive with a whopping 32TB of storage. Already a leader in the global enterprise SSD market, Samsung believes it can reach 100TB capacity within four years.

The company showed off its 32TB Serial Attached SCSI SSD which basically offers double the capacity of its PM1633a drive that was touted by Samsung as the world's largest SSD last year. It has created this SSD by using 32 1TB packages all of which have 512 V-NAND chips stacked in 16 layers. Samsung expects to produce this SSD in 2017 and is aiming for a three-fold increase in store within the next four years. This goes to show that Samsung means business when it comes to its lead in the SSD market and even though vendors like Seagate are pushing the envelope with 60TB SSds in 3.5-inch form factor, Samsung wants them to know that it won't be an easy task for them to overtake the leader.
