Backblaze to Report Latest Hard Drive Failure Stats at MSST 2017

For the last 4 years, Backblaze has collected and reported on the failure rates and SMART stats of the hard drives in use in their data centers. At MSST 2017, Andrew Klein from Backblaze will present on what they’ve learned about hard drives over the years including failure rates by model, and the ability to predict drive failure before it happens. MSST 2017 will dedicate five days to computer-storage technology, including a day of tutorials, two days of invited papers, two days of peer-reviewed research papers, and a vendor exposition. The conference will be held on the beautiful campus of Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley May 15-19, 2017. Learn more at
