My DroboElite is about 60% full right now; and it is SLOWER than molasses. A 27GB copy OFF the drobo will take 7 hours. Copying off 500GB will take about 120HOURS (that’s 5 days).
Seriously? WTF? My USB drive could copy stuff off faster. There’s something seriously wrong with Drobos… How can I improve the speed? Horrible.
Details: Brand new macmini server (Snow Leopard Server) with the drobo elite connected via. ethernet to a switch. The ONLY thing the macmini is doing is copying off data from the drobo. But, it’s so freakin’ slow, it’s a joke. I could literally hook up my USB drive and transfer 1TB over USB2.0 in the time this is taking to copy off only a few GB’s.
Frankly, I convinced that my FiOS internet could download 27GB faster than I’m copying it off locally… There is something seriously wrong with these devices…
