The tech press is popping with stories that (in Europe) Seagate and Western Digital are beginning the process of offering 3Tb drives. Seagate’s is a 7200 RPM Barracuda, WD’s is a 5400 RPM Caviar Green.
At the rate I’m filling my Drobo S, I’m hoping these things are qualified for use in Drobos before I have to go from two-drive redundancy to single-drive redundancy. I really don’t want to do that. But remembering what a mess the 4K sector drives made under Drobo’s old firmware, I’m not going to be the first one in the water, either.
