About this talk

It’s time for our 2017 Hard Drive Stats year-in-review. This past year we added 10TB and 12TB drives to our cache of nearly 100,000 hard drives. This gives us over 500 petabytes of customer data under management. We’ll start with looking at the failure rates of all of the drives we’ve used since we started keeping the stats in 2013. Then we’ll cover 2017 and look for trends over the years. We’ll finish up by comparing the failure rates of our 8 TB consumer drives and our 8 TB enterprise drives. Join us.
