OK I am not in on the joke.

Why do people post $$$'s when Drobo is mentioned?

It goes back to the earlier HSS podcasts. Jim Collison would talk about Drobo and everyone would chime in that they're pretty expensive when compared to other external storage devices. The original ones weren't even NAS devices. So, people started typing $$$$ into the chat window when Jim said the "D" word :D

It's a Jim Collison thing....during the podcast, we would always throw in the $$$$$$ because the Drobo option is a little pricey.  Not saying the value isn't there, just a sizable investment up front.

Limit 3 per customer?  Really Drobo?  That's funny.

 

It's also on sale at Amazon.  http://amzn.com/B00AMAJGOO

 

Running some bench marks right now.  Will post later tonight.

Time to post some benchmarks.  First Graphic is the Drobo FS (older Network attached) an the second is the new Drobo 5N without the MSATA Card installed.  Even without the MSATA card, there is an improvement.

 

DroboFS ATTO

 

Drobo5N No MSATA ATTO
