Apr 20, 2017

In this episode of the ARCHITECHT Show, Derrick Harris speaks with Backblaze founder and CEO Gleb Budman about the economics of cloud storage, including his company's recent 60 percent reduction in download pricing. Backblaze—which is known for its open sourcing its high-density, low-cost storage "pods" and for detailed analyses on the reliability of the consumer-grade hard drives it uses—now stores over 300 petabytes of data. 

In the news segment, Harris and co-host Barb Darrow (Fortune) discuss Oracle-vs.-AWS on data center scale, the past week's container acquisitions and DockerCon, and the rush for cloud providers to tackle offensive content with AI APIs.
