Open source hardware for the win!

Backblaze just released a tutorial showing YOU the user how to build a 4U rackable RAID6 67TB Storage “Pod”

“At Backblaze, we provide unlimited storage to our customers for only $5 per month, so we had to figure out how to store hundreds of petabytes of customer data in a reliable, scalable way—and keep our costs low. After looking at several overpriced commercial solutions, we decided to build our own custom Backblaze Storage Pods: 67 terabyte 4U servers for $7,867.”

This is some seriously cool stuff.

Be Well.
