    A while back they published an article on drive failure rates by manufacturer as experienced by them when using these pods. Seems like a great idea until you look at how they sourced their drives (the cheapest deals they could find) and how they put consumer grade drives into their "Storage Pods"

    You can tell how that worked out for them by the fact that they are now on their third revision of the pods having lost a lot of drives to heat and vibration harmonics encountered when clustering said drives together.

    Overall it may be cheaper than using enterprise drives but reliability issues seem to plague this idea. Think of the differences in both heat and vibration for a drive near the edge of the rack vs one in the center ......

    Most of all I feel sorry for the poor drive manufacturers when such poor data as that produced by these people is read by many thousands of their readers and taken as gospel. A scientific study it most certainly was not !!
