OT: JBOD for MacPro Tube?
Looking for JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks)

OWC ThunderBay IV seems to be the best solutions I've found so far.
Only negative I've heard is constant (not variable) fan which is a bit noisy.

I also see the Drobo 5D but I'm wary about Drobo devices.

There's also DataTale but don't know much about the company or user reports.

Basic intent is:
1) Keep photo, music library and plethora of documents off the small boot SSD
2) Small Windows boot drive for Bootcamp use
3) Time Machine backups
4) Media for lighter work where RAID speed isn't needed.

All this could be a mess of separate daisy chained single drive enclosures but I want to avoid that mess. Of course if someone thinks some of the above functions should be in a separate drive enclosure rather than a Bay, I'm open to hearing why.
