Info on how to choose the best spinning hard drive

Backblaze recently released their quarterly data on hard drive failures for Q1 2016.  This is the ultimate source of info on a large number of hard drives tested over long periods from all the major manufacturers.  It’s impossible to get this much specific info over such a large set of drives without being in the backup business on a large scale.

From their testing it seems like HGST (Hitachi) is the brand to beat when it comes to large spinning hard drives.  If you have a need for large amounts of reliable storage then the HGST hard drives seem to be the way to go, for now.

If you have a need to store large amounts of data but aren’t sure of how to setup a PC or system for this please give us a call to discuss.
