What 10 Years of Drive Stats Data Can Tell Us


For the past 10 years, Backblaze has collected SMART statistics and failure data for over 250,000 hard drives and SSDs. Over that time, for over 100+ drive models, we have reported on drive failure rates as it relates to drive size, manufacturer, temperature, drive class, drive type and more. For this session will deliver our latest research on these attributes including any relevant trends and observations. We will also look at the efforts of data scientists as they utilize the Backblaze Drive Stats data in combination with machine learning and AI technologies to predict drive failure that is statistically accurate and time relevant. Finally, we'll look at how analyzing this data can economically optimize your storage infrastructure.
