“Backblaze Drive Stats for Q1 2022”

“The greatest teacher, failure is.”1

"As of the end of Q1 2022, Backblaze was monitoring 207,872 hard drives used to store data. For our evaluation, we removed 394 drives from consideration as they were either used for testing purposes or were drive models which did not have at least 60 active drives. This leaves us with 207,478 hard drives to analyze for this report. The chart below contains the results of our analysis for Q1 2022.”

WD drives are freaking amazing.  But some of the HGST (a sub of WD) drives are concerning.
