Behind the Curtain of Backblaze Hard Drive Stats

In this video from the MSST 2017 Mass Storage Conference, Andrew Klein from Backblaze shares the results from their latest disk drive reliability study. “For the last four years, Backblaze has collected and reported on the failure rates and SMART stats of the hard drives in use in our data centers. Currently we have over 80,000 drives ranging from 3 to 8TB. Let’s take a look at what we learned over the years about hard drives, including failure rates, by model, and the ability to predict drive failure before it happens.”
