drobo is very easy - setup, insert hdd, copy data onto drobo drive. Done.


Follow up question....
What type of drive configuration do you use?

i mounted drobo as z:\ and loaded 2 1tb hdd.

the total space is under 1tb due to over head of drobo - 929.7 per drobo.com tool.

not sure if this answers your question.

One thing I don't like about Drobo is the lack of a Gigabit NIC. It seems to be nothing more than a glorified External HD as opposed to a NAS/SAN device

What does that mean?? I don't understand the terms.

The network module is sold separately which I like because if you don't need it, you don't pay for it. It's a decent module too, can run a pair of Drobos off it.

Best storage solution I've used is an old (or low end) computer running FreeNas.

I had an old micro ATX motherboard around, bought a celeron processor, and gigabit NIC, and 1 gig of ram for about 70 bux at Fry's electronics. Slapped all that into a 30 dollar computer case and just started adding drives. Considering 500gb drives can be had for 50-60 dollars off the net, and 1tb drives can be found at 100 dollars, I think this is the most cost effective solution for your mass storage needs. Plus with a gigabit network, everything is fast. FreeNAS can also be used as an FTP server, web server, media server, does software raid, can automatically sync/backup files, and can even be configured to start up and shut off at certain times of the day/week.

www.freenas.org (external link) for more info.

I have 2 TB on my network now. And I still have space for 2 more drives. FreeNAS can be a bit daunting for inexperienced users, but the pay off is well worth it.
