Seagate debuts absolutely massive 60TB SSD

Seagate has revealed it is developing a solid state drive with a massive 60TB of storage space. However, the SSD is being targeted for enterprise customers and won't be released until sometime in 2017.

Seagate states:

The 60TB SAS SSD features twice the density and four times the capacity of the next highest-capacity SSD available today — equivalent to the capacity needed to accommodate 400 million photos on a typical social media platform, or 12,000 DVD movies. This single controller architecture also delivers the lowest cost per gigabyte for flash available today.

While the intended audience for this product are businesses who need to move and store lots of data quickly, we could imagine that really hardcore Windows 10 PC owners could keep all of their games, music and photos on this drive with space to spare (provided they have the right hardware setup, of course). Seagate has not announced a price tag for this 60TB SSD, but even though the company says it will offer "the lowest cost per gigabyte for flash available today" we would imagine it's still going to be crazy expensive.

What would you do with 60TB of fast SSD storage? Let us know what you would do with Seagate's drive in the comments.
