Quick Setup and Details.
MS Windows 2003 R2 Standard Server x64
Silicon Image 3132 Softraid 5 Controller
Acronis True Image Echo Server
Drobo Gen 2
4x Western Digital Black 1TB
Currently I extermly disappointed in the speed of my 2 Gen Drobo, Fireware 800 on Win2003 with a far better card then Data Robotic recommends. (SIIG PCI-X Firewire 800 Card).
My current Drobo is 1.9TB Full so far, I plan to add another 1TB so I can turn on DDR. Which I’m hoping to at the very least get sustained write speed of 60mb/s.
So any problems with Drobo S and Windows 2003 Server x64?
Any issues using True Image Software and a Drobo S?
What other problems have you had with Drobo S by itself?
How much does the DDR effect the write speeds?
Anyone have REAL world number of the read/write speeds with DDR, SDR and the eSATA port.
I don’t plan to use USB other than firmware updates for the time being, Pure use of the eSATA port.
