Petabyte Nearing $100,000

by Jack Richins

This is an order of magnitude improvement and very significant – Backblaze claims to have their cost for a petabyte of online storage down to $117,000. What they don’t detail is the software and services surrounding the raw drives – which is the more interesting and proprietary information. I don’t blame them for not sharing, but am interested. If I could only get a faster upload :), the days of online storage might be getting even closer.
