Opinions on Drobo
I've been looking at getting a Drobo NAS for a while. I was wondering if anyone has any experience of them. I'm looking at getting the 5N. I'm not interested in running apps and I'm aware this one doesn't run Drobo apps. Just looking for a very reliable expandable NAS.
My main concern is what happens if the NAS has a hardware failure itself and not the hard disks. Since its a proprietary system what is the recovery procedure? The other issue is price - they sure are expensive!
