We have a couple Drobos at my work. They are a nuisance.

First of all, they don't consistently connect via iSCSI. We've contacted Drobo a few times about this and all they're really said is, "yea, you could try buying another ethernet board." So FW800 is the only connection that works consistently...most of the time.

Also, Drobos aren't meant for editing. In fact, the discs slow down when they are filled to a certain capacity and get slower as you keep filling them. So even if you do get the iSCSI to work, you still may not achieve the speed you desire.

If you need performance, buy a RAID built for it. Drobos are made more for back least that the impression I have.
