DroboElite - any comments?
We are looking at a more long term storage plan with the main focus being on capacity (and the ability to expand) and redundancy.
So far the DroboElite has caught my eye for these main points and most of all its low up front cost.
The main purpose for the Drobo would be storage of users work and shares – nothing intensive like hosting virtual disks.
We already have a number of 500Gb hard drives out of use since we migrated over to a virtual server environment so if I could save on buying new drives (as I would have to should I buy something branded like a HP array) that would be another benefit (especially considering there is nothing wrong with the spare drives I have).
So to that effect does anyone on here have any good/bad/ugly stories to tell of the DroboElite – a quick search reveals a few answers but nothing in detail.
