Q3 2017 Hard Drive Failure Stats

Presented by

Andrew Klein, Director, Product Marketing, Backblaze

About this talk

Backblaze manages over 85,000 hard drives and stores over 400 petabytes of customer data. In this webinar we'll share the reliability of the hard drives we use. We'll cover the annualized failure rates of the Seagate, WDC and HGST hard drives in our data centers, varying in size from 3 TB to 12 TB. We'll also compare Enterprise versus Consumer hard drive models, to see which is the best for you.

For over a decade, Backblaze has been a transparent company in the opaque world of cloud data storage. We've written on our blog about hard drive failure rates, data center internals, our open source high density storage design, and more. Here we are on Brighttalk and each month our goal is to bring you a webcast or video that sheds some light behind the scenes of a Cloud Storage company. And yes, we'll have a sales pitch or two the "off" weeks. Join us when you can!
