Goodbye, Drobo...

RE: Goodbye, Drobo...
Another one to add to this thread.
My DroboPro has been marvellous for years now. Unfortunately, I've been tinkering with storage again and sort of accidentally set up a ZFS server.
My old desktop from 2008 (Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, a few added drive bays) running Linux with raidz2 across 6 drives sustains 50-60MB/sec over SMB and a bit less over iSCSI (and 100MB/s for rsync; it's just a weak CPU). It doesn't have that Drobo Cool, but it also doesn't have that Drobo Encrypted Diagnostics or that Drobo Why Did You Rebuild Last Night. Or that Drobo If You Die, I Pray To the Gods of Online Used Marketplaces.
Once I migrate over, I'll find a good home for this DroboPro. It's a beautiful unit.

Well, it got me thinking about Drobo again, and reading the forum. Great to see some of the old-timers still around!
