The Backblaze Annual Drive Stats Review for 2021

Presented by

Andy Klein, Drive Stats Evangelist

About this talk

Now in its sixth year, the 2021 edition of the annual Backblaze Drive Stats report will be published on February 1st. This webinar will dissect that report and dig into the numbers behind the graphs and charts to shed light on the opaque world of hard drive and SSD failure rates. We’ll examine the failure rates and trends of drives by size, drive by manufacturer, and drives by model. In addition, for the first time, our webcast will cover the life expectancy of the 200,000+ hard drives we manage every day. For example, you'll learn: what are the chances that a drive you buy today will last five years - 90%, 75%, 50%? Sign up today - you won’t get this kind of information about hard drives from anywhere else.

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!
