Large size (>5Tb) 2.5" drives

I didn't start looking before covid hit, but it seems to be impossible over here to get 2.5" drives above 5Tb. My server uses 2x4Tb 2.5" as well as 4x4Tb 3.5", and if I want to migrate to a larger size, where do I go? I've seen 7.8Tb SSDs but they're way above my price point, over 1000 dollars (if not a lot more than that) a drive.

Unfortunately, none of the drive manufacturers have made anything larger than 5TB in a 2.5" 15mm form factor.

First post, so hope it's not out of line.

 

But there are actually drives larger than 5TB in 2.5", but they're ssds--as high as 30TB that I've seen in the wild so far.  And yes, they cost as much as a used car, lol.
