The Drobo's causing quite a bit of excitement - see


It's early days, but the idea of cheap commodity SATA drives, hot-pluggable, with auto-healing is very attractive. No trays required, and the connectors on the back of every SATA hard drive are surely durable enough for this kind of service (not for daily swap, though).

OTOH, one of the drive manufacturers tried something like this two years ago (USB only; virtual volumes; proprietary data scattering). It was slow and buggy. I'd wait, remaining in intrigued mode, if I were you.
