How to Build a 67TB 4U Storage Pod for Under 8 Grand

The Backblaze blog has the details on how they designed their own custom storage pod to enable their low-cost, unlimited cloud storage service. What they came up with was a 4U server that holds 67TB of data for under $8,000 USD. That’s a lot of data. The storage nuts in our forums have been talking about this for a few days so jump into the discussion via the link below.

In this post, we’ll share how to make one of these storage pods, and you’re welcome to use this design. Our hope is that by sharing, others can benefit and, ultimately, refine this concept and send improvements back to us. Evolving and lowering costs is critical to our continuing success at Backblaze.
