Backblaze data shows that SSD failures are almost as frequent as hard drives

New data released by cloud storage company Backblaze shows that its SSD failure rate is almost as high as that of a hard disk drive (HDD).exist A recent blog post, Backblaze explained its drive analysis of SSDs and HDDs, which revolved around actual use in a real-time environment. The company uses SMART statistics to check the health of the drive. Backblaze stated that it does not know why the failure rate of its SSDs is so high at this time.

In order to analyze drive failures, Backblaze defines drive failures as complete failures or imminent drive failures. To predict the latter, Backblaze uses the drive’s internal SMART statistics, record read error rate, SSD wear leveling, power-on time, total number of program failures, etc.
