That is a lot of HDD.

BackBlaze implementation is that there is a set of 20 servers, and 1 disk from each server is part of a set of 20 disks that the Soloman Reed Erasure encoding is spewed across.

what are you really trying to accomplish?

i am totall noob of coding....my question:

how to use this under windows 10?
This is one of those "if you have to ask - the answer is no" situations.

The main problem has nothing to do with number of disks (or any hardware for that matter).
The main problem is that the code that Backblaze released is not an end user product. It is a Java library to be integrated in your own data storage solutions. It contains data sharding and parity calculation functions only. You need to write the rest of the system (like 99.99% of it) by yourself.

ok, clear enough...

If you want something like that, you want to setup your own server and run either CEPH or GPFS...

Or fall back to the next best things, ZFS on FreeNAS/etc.
