How to Build Your Own 135 Terabyte Array for More Money Than You are Willing to Spend on One

Recommended Videos

Though unlimited backup provider Backblaze doesn’t sell it, they have provided instructions on how to build your very own 135 terabyte protected storage pod so you have somewhere to keep all those backed up episodes of True Blood. Kind of hilariously to we normalfolk, Backblaze built the storage pod in the name of avoiding “overpriced commercial solutions,” and constructed the pod for only $7,384, though admittedly, that’d hold a lot of Rock Band DLC and Doctor Who episodes.

The pod puts all that storage online, and is obviously not intended for personal use, but hey, Backblaze posted the instructions on how to build one for a reason, right? Right? (For you to build one of your own.) Among the many parts listed, the most expensive are easily the 45 3TB drives, which’ll clock in at $5,400. The next most expensive parts, two 760 watt power supplies, are relatively much cheaper at only $540. So, if you have a bunch of space, money, time and digital things you really need to keep somewhere, head on over to the Backblaze blog to check out how to build your own 135 terabyte pod.
