The main focus of this paper is to develop a distributed large scale data analysis platform for the opensource data of Backblaze cloud datacenter which consists of operational hard disk drive (HDD) information collected over an observable period of 2272 days (over 74 months). To carefully analyze the intrinsic characteristics of the hard disk behavior, we have exploited a large bolume of data and the benefits of Hadoop ecosystem as our big data processing engine. In other words, we have utilized a special distributed scheme on cloud for cloud HDD data, which is termed as Cloud2HDD. To classify the remaining lifetime of hard disk drives based on health indicators such as in-built S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) features, we used some of the state-of-the-art classification algorithms and compared their accuracy, precision, and recall rates simultaneously. In addition, importance of various S.M.A.R.T. features in predicting the true remaining lifetime of HDDs are identified. For instance, our analysis results indicate that Random Forest Classifier (RFC) can yield up to 94% accuracy with the highest precision and recall at a reasonable time by classifying the remaining lifetime of drives into one of three different classes, namely critical, high and low ideal states in comparison to other classification approaches based on a specific subset of S.M.A.R.T. features.
