Drive Extender Replacements for your Server on Home Server Show 216

• March 14, 2013

I’ve got a full house for you on this episode.  These guys are here to tell you about their own experiences with the different Drive Extender products that are on the market today.  I’m talking about StableBit DrivePool, DriveBender, and Storage Spaces.  We are not comparing anything to RAID on this one.  It’s just about the products.  It’s a great show and I hope you like it.  My thanks to my guests for joining.  Check out the YouTube of this episode for all screen shots.  http://youtube.com/homeservershow
