The above is a collection of stats based on our experiences with the drives we use in our datacenter, if they're not listed, we haven't tried them! Over time, there is a 100% failure rate on all lines across all brands. It would be nice if they bought 200 drives of various flavors that are available at a good price per TB at cdw/newegg/amazon/insight/etc. To be even worse, if datas are scattered into multiple platters, meaning not the same cylinder on every level, how even on earth can this be more faster than datas stored http://linux4newbie.com/hard-drive/mac-hard-drive-failure-symptoms.html
The next tech coming down the pike like this on the other hand probably will. Enterprise drives have better warranties, they are built better, higher performance and are absolutely worth the 10% premium. share|improve this answer answered Oct 3 '14 at 11:15 agtoever 4,3631929 Just noticed Backblaze updated their data which is not incorporated in these numbers. –agtoever Oct 3 '14 at And why don't Seagate and WDC release info?
After that I always ONLY ordered Western Digital. We've done something like a lifetime distribution function that showed to the failure rates over time, but that was for all drives, not a specific model. This was due mostly to the rush to reach those sized first.
As my 1 tb or 2tb will be for streaming, storages, pictures , movies, loading and watching. I dumped WD because of reliability problems, yet the few Seagates I own have been working flawlessly for at least two years. The video shows it negatively affects the performance of the drives as well. Seagate Vs Western Digital External Hard Drive just swap it out at the end of the day and it'll work itself out Matt Menezes Well, RAID rebuilds are really expensive performance wise.
Unsubscribe any time. Hgst Hard Drives Didn't even last 2 years. A less expensive option is WD reds, still expensive though. RKflorida However, those are the exact types of drives most of us have in our computers.
In desktop, in laptop, and in my servers. Hds5c3030ala630 Flash chips, of course, have cycle limits, but that's due to their persistent nature. #25 pitz, May 29, 2010 (You must log in or sign up to post here.)

Enterprise offer more warranty but not relative to data safty. https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-reliability-stats-for-q2-2015/ Aurangzeb Agha Hi Andy. Hard Drive Failure Rates 2016 Compared to the average user, I undoubtedly work my hard drives harder for longer. Most Reliable Hard Drive Brand etc.
Was working fine then I safely removed in from Windows and disconnected.. this contact form One of the folks who downloaded the data was Ross Lazarus, a self-described grumpy computational biologist. Regards TG Andy Klein I'm not sure which SMART stat you are referring to by Latent Sector Errors? A quick question. Hms5c4040ble640
It's basically a personal cloud device, but it's super small and you can back up your info from anywhere with a wifi connection. how ever what really is telling is how the company deals with replacing their defective product. Buy to replace five years later. have a peek here Until we can get a reasonable number of these drives, we can’t recommend either of them, although you may find them to be just fine for your personal use.
Charles Hammond I think your failure rates are junk science. Hgst External Hard Drive Most "SSD failures" that are reported today are the result of firmware malfunction or user malfunction, not of actual hardware failure. After a drive is removed from service we don't count any of the stats that may occur.
Tim Wessels Well, if the link to AWS is accurate, these Seagate 4TB HDDs spin at 5900 RPM, which may make them more reliable over time. I want 8tb archive drives badly but still refuse to buy the seagate. Do you anything written on SAS Disks. Most Reliable External Hard Drive 2016 The annualized failure rate for all 4TB drives lifetime is 2.12%.
Meaning, that Backblaze, could have easily "varied" in to a better than average population of Toshiba drives(there were only 200 some) than Seagate drives(31,000). 3) You should not be running desktop You'll get a DOA hard drive on any manufacturer, but out of the hundreds of Black's I've ordered, none have been DOA or died as far as I know. We don't mind drive failures, in-fact, we design our back-end around them -> https://www.backblaze.com/blog/vault-cloud-storage-architecture/, so for us the price is really the key component. Check This Out Michele Why isn't there anything about the Seagates (or others) in 5 TB sized drives?
Do you have any idea what the spun-up / spun-down duty cycle is on those drives? Data on SSDs is not as reliable in heat as with hard drives. I would never purchase any of the services your company offers as it is evident that much like yourself they are incompetent as well. We used Red for NAS and RE for servers (with SSD now also - which fail all the time, so we have run them in mulitples) Weird not to see any
The only thing holding Backblaze back from going with all Hitachi drives was the price, which was one reason why the company sticks with Seagate drives.Your risk of a complete hard OF 9 - 7 failed - I'd say your percentages of failure rate for the Toshiba DT01ACA series are just a tad off from real world failure rates. Francisco Presencia Shouldn't you meassure the failure rate vs years in service, instead of failure rate vs natural years? If you backup your data you will never loose it because of a dead drive regardless of brand.
I've also had drives with 4 platters work flawlessly for years. We tried the HGST 8TB drives to check out the energy efficiency of the Helium drives versus "air" drives. The point is that hard drives experience such frequent failure on the individual bit level that we have to insert code every 4kB to make up for it. Kyle It's not just about the reliability.
If you want a timeline of failure points, you'd have to look through the data here: https://www.backblaze.com/hard-drive-test-data.html to build that. 2) We talk to the vendors about all kinds of things So, the metric is useless by itself.
