Just wondering how long it will take for the obligatory 'that is a lot of data to lose in one hit' comments to commence.
Things seem unusually slow at the moment.
Pretty sure you just started them :P
At some point people probably said that about 18GB hard drives!
It's not about the size, but the time time it takes to rebuild an array. While drives sizes have gotten dramatically larger over time, read and write speeds haven't.
only noobs would run a single drive of that size, it should always be part of a RAID array.
also have another raid array at a different location syncing with that over the internet.
I have a backup RAID array mirrored to my private island, only accessible by helicopter. Sometimes I fly out, sit in a chair and stroke my cat.
@zan5hin: I hope your cat consents too you "stroking" it.
@zan5hin: Hope the ransomware doesn't lay dormant and propagate to the island.
just buy 2 and raid 1 them, problem solved!
Note the 18tb mybook is about $550pp.
Link? I want one!
Yep just found it. Was tricky, had to type “18TB” into the search.
@Mitch889: It’s a WD180EDFZ according to https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/jscq6z/18tb_ea...
Seems share the same R/N with:
- WD Gold 18TB https://www.umart.com.au/Western-Digital-18TB-Gold-3-5in-SAT...
- DC HC550 18TB https://documents.westerndigital.com/content/dam/doc-library...
At ~$30 per TB, not ideal. Maybe one day it will be on sale and get close to the sweet spot of $25 per TB
@xmagic: i thought the sweet spot used to be anything under $100 per TB…. (or 10c per GB)
Any idea which drive they are putting in the 18tb mybook?
I would imagine it was one with 18TB?
Being their top tech I presume all their 18tb drives are the same
It’s cool that you can get so much storage in one drive, but definitely paying a premium for the extra few TBs at this stage.
This is great for any porn historian out there.
that is a lot of data to lose in one hit, so I bought 2 for backup
I'm sure in 2021, 18TB drives are available in every corner drugstore, but in 1955, it's a little hard to come by.
Great Scott! Hard drives weren't commercially available until 1956. Here is the very first ~5MB hard drive.
For anyone that cares, actual formatted capacity is 16.37TB. Thanks decimal measuring system :)
thats my disclaimer on tinder
that's a deal breaker right there for me!
Why the product pic has baby poo colour instead of shiny gold brick?
Well, you know, the obsolete metal usually oxidized.
