Take a journey through our datacenter as we take a look back on our 6TB Seagate and Western Digital drives.
 
We revisit our 6TB Seagate and Western Digital hard drives to see how they are doing after a bit of scaling -> https://www.backblaze.com/blog/our-6tb-hard-drive-face-off-revisited #bigstorage   #bigdata   #backup  
A few months back we published our initial evaluation of 6TB drives, comparing Seagate (model ST6000DX000) and Western Digital (WD60EFRX).

Beginning in January 2012, Backblaze deployed 4,829 Seagate 3TB hard drives, model ST3000DM001, into Backblaze Storage Pods. In our experience, 80% of the hard drives we deploy will function at least 4 years. As of March 31, 2015, just 10% of the Seagate 3TB drives deployed in 2012 are still in service. This is the....

Just trying to help...#teehee
Yesterday, the FCC announced that it would be reclassifying internet service providers as Title II utilities. Net Neutrality has been a topic of great debate over the last few months, and while many people are excited about the change, there is also some dissent. Verizon for their part, looked to the past, claiming that the....

Today, the Federal Communications Commission took measures to redefine broadband as 25 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up in the United States. This is wonderful news for internet users, and will hopefully lead to more broadband availability for everyone in the US! The increase to 25/3 is up from 4 Mbps down and 1 Mbps....
