Backblaze Storage Pod 6.0: Chassis 60 Drive 600TB Storage Server
Backblaze Storage Pod 6.0 deploys 60 off-the-shelf hard drives in a 4U chassis to lower the cost of our latest data storage server to just $0.036/GB. That’s 22 percent less than our Storage Pod 5.0 storage server that used 45 drives to store data for $0.044/GB. That’s a 33 percent increase to the storage density in the same rack space. Using 4TB drives in a 60-drive Storage Pod increases the amount of storage in a standard 40U rack from 1.8 to 2.4 Petabytes. Of course, by using 8TB drives you’d get a 480TB data storage server in 4U server and 4.8 Petabytes in a standard rack.
The only thing included in this option is the 6.0 chassis housing unit and 120 drive guides. You can see all of the parts in detail in our: Step by step assembly instructions
