I don't know: I can't see any reason they couldn't create 20TB M.2 drives in the near term if they wanted to. We haven't put in a system with a spinning drive in it in at least two years, although we have put a few 128GB SSDs in the process (workstations in our setup just don't need more).

While I consider today's NAS market to be way overpriced, I'd really like to have about 20TB of SSD in one. I think there are bus problems preventing that with M.2, but you'd know more about that than I do.

The more recent servers we put in have been SSDs and they scream. I've been using mirroring with one or two hot spares. I have one that's been running for 3.5 years with that configuration which may be a record for one of our servers. And the hot spares have not yet been touched (although we did have a bad sector, the RAID marked it went on).

I guess we'll know in a year or two lol.
