Having had a tough 2010 and so far an equally tough 2011 which has not only left me poor but also with a server that constantly worries me, I would use it as the basis of a complete rebuild of the Windows home server system. After all reliable storage is the purpose of it all, right?

I'd use it as primary storgae in WHS2011. Everything but my movies would go on it. This would give me flexibility to grow over time with data redundancy.

I know my HPEX485 will not last forever. This would be good to go ahead and prepare for moving forward with 2011 if and WHEN that times arrives.

I would setup the 4 bay Drobo to backup the computers at home (1 Windows 7 Pro, 4 Apple computers, and soon 1 Windows Server 2008R2). Once WHS 2011 goes live, I would convert my current WHS v1 to WHS 2011 and use it to back it up.

A Drobo is the last piece of the puzzle for the upgrade to Vail. I want to upgrade SOOO back, but I don't want to risk losing my data. A drobo could be a DE replacement.
