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.

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.
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.
