Default "Hard Drive Stats for 2019"

"Hard Drive Stats for 2019"

"As of December 31, 2019, Backblaze had 124,956 spinning hard drives. Of
that number, there were 2,229 boot drives and 122,658 data drives. This
review looks at the hard drive failure rates for the data drive models
in operation in our data centers. In addition, we’ll take a look at how
our 12 and 14 TB drives are doing and get a look at the new 16 TB drives
we started using in Q4. Along the way we’ll share observations and
insights on the data presented and we look forward to you doing the same
in the comments."

That is a lot of hard drives !

Uh oh, the Seagate 12 TB hard drives are failing. Of course, Backblaze
is a harsh environment with warm cases and 64 hard drives in a case
(imagine the vibration and electrical noise !) so their failure rate may
be exaggerated. Or not.
