- OWC presents: How can you avoid the catastrophes caused by disk drive failure - Tim Standing
With the appearance of Thunderbolt on Macs, it is easier than ever to attach many disks to a single Mac. We now routinely have 20 - 100 TB of storage directly attached to our computers (on 4 - 16 disks). This can result in huge business losses when disks fail.
This session will go through some of the studies on disk drive failure (with 10,000 to 100,000 disks) and explain how we can use those studies to help predict when a disk is more likely to fail. We will also cover some steps you can take to avoid disasters and review what we've learned while supporting our customers during the past 20 years.
