Intel's first 'ruler' SSD holds 32TB

Intel has unsheathed its first "ruler" SSD, a bizarre device with a 12-inch long form form factor and colossal amount of storage. Intel created the new form factor last year to cram as much storage as possible into a "1U" server form factor, with optimal thermal efficiency. Intel notes that 32 of the SSDs could be lined up side by side to store a petabyte in a single server slot.
