Just got the email regarding the updated Drobo S. It looks interesting, but I can’t figure it out. This question might just for the Data Robotics, but maybe someone read it and I missed it:
- Is the virtual volume still limited at 16TB? If so can be created more than one or are we still limited to one?
- Will the read/writes be faster over eSATA or that just another gimmick? (We all know how slow the Drobo V2 over FW800 even though we know that FW800 supports a much faster throughput)
Otherwise I think the new unit looks great… I would love to buy one, but I find it hard to justify unless it’s significantly faster than the old one.
