Description of my final project

Project Name: Hard Drive Project

In a team of four, my project partners and I utilized data provided by BackBlaze, to identify the primary drivers of early failures in hard drives. Together we developed a model to predict early failures using information found in the data. We then used our findings to make recommendations about hard drive reliability, based on a given drives model, manufacturer, and other criteria.
