and yes I know RAID 5 has a big performance hit. It is a reasonable tradeoff between redundancy & speed.
your problem wasn't the Drobo, which can be connected with eSATA or GigEthernet. The problem is using crappy "eco friendly low power" green drives. If you concern is performance, then don't get the slowest most energy efficient drives you can find. Get yourself some 10k RPM drives with 64MB cache. Like these:
And then use a RAID 5 setup in the Drobo.
I have two SATA over USB docks for bare SATA harddrives. I have ~7TB of unique data I keep (video editing business generates a lot of data).
I copy data using BeyondCompare from the edit RAID array to each twin pair of SATA drives. That gives me some redundancy for the data, but is a PITA to track.
I also would love to have a software solution that lets me just number the drives, tell the system to keep two copies of everything, and then would just instruct me which drive # to pop in the dock in order to back up file X.
Nothing is like watching a rocket launch at night. fantastic experience.
I used to only use FB on the mobile app, but it crashed so much and took too long to load so I ditched it. Mobile G+ is a lot faster and hasnt' crashed on me yet.
This story is full of fail...... the very reason people use G+ is so that they can post NON-PUBLIC content to their specific circles!
If they want to really get useful information, then need to ask Google for the aggregate statistics of posting activity including private circles.
Just get a metal bracket and hang the server vertically (or invert it so that the cold to hot flow is from bottom to top. That takes up a LOT less room. But if you want a full sized one, I have a full height full cage rack in my garage you are welcome to have for free. But you pay shipping.
Yay corporate greed and licensing to ruin the Olympics. Sad and inevitable.
Silly wabbit. Openness and transparency isn't for Kids (or school).
why is waist high walls.... anything? this most be some new meme all the kids are talking about...
