Hah! I love your spirit, Bob. And the thoroughness of your responses. Just a quick couple things in my "defense."

1. This actually isn't my first post. Over the years I've posted a handful of times, but it's been awhile since the last time and I couldn't remember my darn log-in. So I started all over.

2. I only asked about 45 Drives because the dude reached out to me. Never really thought about shared storage to this point.

3. Interesting that you're frustrated with their lack of advertising or participation in trade shows. People have told me - you should advertise to get more business. Or, you should go to trade shows. Advertising, exhibiting...expensive! And cold calling still works 😉

Before I posted, I did, actually, do a little sleuthing on CC. And I had noticed you (or perhaps someone else) had mentioned QNAP, and it seems that, based on what you're saying, the QNAP TS-1685 would be comparable to the Storinator AV15 but cost me about $1500, even after I buy my 20TB of storage.

Anyway, this is a very long-winded way of saying: thanks a lot for the wisdom. Very good to know that we can work with a shared server (whatever it might be) and not have to upgrade work stations right away.
