Today We Reach 3,000 Days Binary Retention

Today we have reached a new milestone in usenet performance. We have officially hit 3,000 days of binary retention. That means that no article posted in the last 3,000 days has been lost due to a lack of storage space.

Celebrating 2500 Days of Retention

We’ve reached a huge milestone today by officially hitting 2500 days of usenet retention in our binary newsgroups. 11 years ago, when NGD was just getting started, retention was commonly in the 14-24 day range. It’s hard to believe just how far we’ve come. Vastly improved hard drive technology and dwindling storage costs have made this monumental growth possible.

How To Choose A Usenet Service

We know you have lots of choices when it comes to choosing a usenet service provider. There are many usenet companies out there and most offer similar services, but there are definitely a few things you should look for when comparing companies and a few reasons why we believe NewsgroupDirect is the best usenet provider around.

New Milestone for Usenet Retention

Today we reached a new milestone! Our binary retention has crossed the 2,200 day mark. It’s always exciting when we reach nice round numbers like 2,000 days or 2,200 days. It’s a good time to reflect on how far we’ve come as a company (and an industry). Thanks to our amazing customers for making this continued growth and improvement possible. We couldn’t do it without you!

2,000 Days of Usenet Retention

Today we officially hit the milestone of offering 2,000 days of binary usenet retention. 10 years ago, when NewsgroupDirect was just getting started, the industry standard for retention was 12-24 days. It’s amazing how far things have progressed since then.

Usenet Retention Reaches 4 Years

Break out the champagne! NewsgroupDirect is proud to announce that our usenet retention just reached another milestone. We have no surpassed 4 YEARS of retention. Maybe we should start advertising retention in terms of years instead of days? We’re not stopping at 4 years, we’ll continue increasing retention every single day.

Retention is Now Up To 1350 Days

We just wanted to provide a quick update on our retention statistics. Today we passed the 1350 days mark for binary retention… that’s about 3.7 YEARS. Hooray for technology!

Binary Retention Reaches 810 Days

Our binary retention continues to climb into the stratosphere. We have zoomed past 800 days and are currently around 810 days and growing – that’s OVER 2 YEARS of articles. At a lowball average of 1.5 TB/day for the usenet feed, that means that our servers house an astounding 1.2 petabytes of data.
