    Someone wake up me because I think I'm dreaming. Someone actually made the perfect storage companion to the Mac Pro/PowerMac!

    For 2TB it's $2199 so it's definitely not cheap but it's a lot better than the stupidly ridiculous price of Apple's Xserve Raid (now discontinued? -- is that right?).


    CalDigit HDOne 8 TERABYTE!

    It's funny in the description they said you could use this to store your music library and photo library. Haha!

    Ive seen one holding 4 x 500gb (2 tb) hard drives, there are several brands, made in aluminium to match our MP's, it's a HD vault, load it with internal sata II HDD's and runs in a raid configuration,use it as 1 massive hard Drive, they are pretty good, the one i saw was holding a massive video/media library, plus they look good too. :)

    The XSR isn't 'stupidly ridiculous' for a fibre channel storage array. What works for the singleton designer (and what he/she considers 'stupidly expensive' due to lack of knowledge) may be different to what I may consider actually quite decent value for money in a large-scale computing scenario. (as well as being the only pieces of Apple hardware not to have let me down at some point or other*)

    Horses for courses. It seems like an interesting solution, although the "direct connect" raises quite a lot of questions.

    *EDIT: I forgot to add far.

    Is it true that there's LSD inside iMacs or am I seeing those HDD indicator lights flash?

    Looks like a very nice storage rack.

    What are other brands? I'm so enamored by CalDigit's approach to aesthetics that I'm willing to pay that price. Unless you can suggest another company that's a little more down to earth?

    It's definitely the picture and not that hit you took a few hours ago. The picture format is .gif so yeah.
