    Backblaze has just released their Hard Drive Status for Q1 2017. What is interesting is that they purchased several thousand enterprise drives (they normally use consumer drives). It is too early yet to tell how they will perform, but they do have some initial comments about the 2 drive types.

    They have an earlier article from 2013 which is useful as it discusses "How long do disk drives last".
