    Does anyone know if the Fusion Drive technology could be incorporated into a future Time Capsule? I'm not keen in speeds, but that would allow the hourly backup be pushed faster onto the Capsule then later written to the hard drive.

    That would be neat (and fast). Or I may have a complete misunderstanding of all this.

    Better investment would be a faster NAS with TM. Synology makes scads of them.

    The HDD isn't likely to be the bottleneck in a NAS.

    Why? The network latency would mean that any performance increase due to the inclusion of the SSD would be lost. The drive is not the bottleneck when doing backups, its the network bandwidth.

    Ahh. I thought it was. Thanks for the education!
