Seagate just showed up Samsung with its latest product: its new 60TB SSD is the largest capacity drive of its kind in the world, and holds four times as much as Samsung’s recent offering.

Sadly, it’s not for you. The company is currently demonstrating the device as a solution for data centers that need reliable drives for long-term data storage, and it hopes to make it available sometime in 2017.

It probably won’t be cheap either. For comparison, Samsung’s 15TB SSD drive, which went on sale earlier this month, costs a whopping $10,000. You can get a closer look at it at the the Flash Memory Summit conference in Santa Clara, California.
