I am trying to sort out what solution will work best for me regarding external storage with the new mac pro. I would like all of my internal drives in a single enclosure, but I would prefer to avoid a raid setup that would require me to double everything in order to truly have a backup (redundancy is not backup) I believe the solution might be JBOD, but I don't actually know for sure how JBOD works and my searching thus far has been inconclusive. If I drop 4 drives into a thunderbolt enclosure and use JBOD, will OS X see all the disks separately exactly as if they were internal drives? This is exactly what I am trying to accomplish, so if anyone has experience with this, that would be awesome. My concern is some make it sound like JBOD is just another type of raid where you can mix and match any type/size HDD and end up with what OS X would think is a very large single disk, which I am not interested at all in. So is it possible to have a single enclosure with an array of disks show up as a number of disks in OS X just as if they were all separate internal drives? Thanks for any help!
