No cure in sight for unpredictable hard drive loss
 
Earlier this month, Google researchers released a fascinating paper called 'Failure Trends in a Large Disk Drive Population' that examined hard drive failure rates in Google's infrastructure.

This throws conventional wisdom about predicting drive failures into question, so we sought out some independent expert analysis to weigh in on the findings.
