The Life and Times of a Backblaze Hard Drive
Over on the Backblaze blog, Andy Klein has penned the moving story of what it’s like to be a hard drive at Backblaze… from the perspective of a hard drive named Zach. With some whimsical illustrations, the post could be a children’s book—the perfect bedtime story for budding young geeks. Beyond the engaging plot twists, it’s also an interesting look at how Backblaze evaluates and replaces failing drives. Worth a read.
That was a fascinating article. Made me realise I have to treat my hard drives with more dignity and respect - from henceforth they shall all be named something meaningful.
