Two Videos showing hard drives in action

The effect of Vibration on hard drives

This two minute video shows the effect of vibration on disk performance. Jbod stands for "just a bunch of disks". In the video a man shouts at his hard drives which are monitored for drive latency. The effects are startling. I was also startled by the man shouting at his drives. Imagine how startled the drives were!
