I am new to drobo and very interested in the ease and getting away from the RAID restrictions. I have a few questions that may be a bit complex.
I will have a Windows Home Server (2011 when it releases) hosting data, only for my MediaCenter to share media to 2-4 xbox’s using the MediaCenter Extender.
I also have 3 Mac’s that I want to use drobo for Time Machine to back up.
Obviously I will be using a lot of bandwidth that I am already setup for. I am looking for a decent redundant solution like drobo that will fullfill my needs.
My questions are, which drobo is best? Some research has shown low throughput on the drobo fs. Is this true? People are claiming ~20Mb and complaining it is too low. I am looking for multiple streams, so that would be too low.
I will have some video at 1080p, will that take too much bandwidth to backup or stream more than 1 device?
I hope to find answers and thank all help.
