Petabytes on a Budget

46,228 views

Published on

Backblaze needs petabytes of storage, but Amazon S3, EMC, NetApp, etc. were outrageously expensive - so we built our own, in a lean-startup way. We show how this went from a wood prototype to 15 petabytes of cloud storage. We open-sourced the design and 500,000 read the blog post and hundreds of companies are now using these storage pods.
