Observation:

A drive model with a failure rate of 0% signifies that no failure occurred for that particular model. The two drives that showcase this are Toshiba’s 4TB and 5TB models for which the last failure occurred all the way back in Q2 2016.

Predictions and goals for 2019:

  • BlackBlaze will continue to migrate from low density to high density drives
  • They plan to install at least twenty 20TB drives for testing
  • Their total available cloud storage will exceed 1 exabyte (1000 petabytes)
  • Installation of at least 1 HAMR based drive from Seagate or MAMR drive from WD.
