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!
