Backblaze, "Hard Drive Stats for Q3 2017"
https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-...rates-q3-2017/

"In Q3 2017, Backblaze introduced both 10 TB and 12 TB hard drives into
our data centers, we continued to retire 3 TB and 4 TB hard drives to
increase storage density, and we added over 59 petabytes of data storage
to bring our total storage capacity to 400 petabytes."

Those Seagate 4 TBs are looking scary.

I'm glad those ST6000DX000 drives are still looking good: I have six of
them that have run 24/7 for more than 2 years without a hiccup.

I have 4 of the 4TB's, so far so good, but the ice suddenly feels thin
under them.

I am in the process of swapping my 4 TBs for 8 TBs. Only 4 left to go
out of 11.
