Reliability Traces Added to the SNIA IOTTA Repository

The SNIA IOTTA Trace Repository recently added an ongoing set of reliability records collected by Backblaze, Inc. The nine-year dataset collection currently includes 306 million records.
Records were collected daily, each giving S.M.A.R.T. data from a drive in a large disk farm. Failed drives are noted, so that cross-population trends can be evaluated.
Established and maintained by the SNIA “Input/Output Traces, Tools, and Analysis Technical Work Group (IOTTA TWG)”, the SNIA IOTTA Repository is a worldwide repository for storage-related I/O trace files, associated tools, and other related information.
