  1. We're expecting a vSAN config with Optane soon. Hopefully we'll have time to borrow a drive for a little more of a shakedown.
  2. Affordable 10TB drives availability?

    Depends what you want but a lot of people in your position are buying WD externals and "shucking." Just yank the drives and toss the rest. Many times these are cheaper than the drives would be otherwise.
  3. The TS-x77 series includes models with AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (8-cores/16-threads) and AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (6-cores/12-threads) processors that support AES-NI encryption acceleration. It also features up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, two M.2 SATA 6 GB/s SSD for cache acceleration or high-performance storage pools, USB 3.1 Gen2 10Gbps Type-A and Type-C ports, and three PCIe slots for incredible expansion. Supported PCIe devices include a graphics cards, 10GbE/40GbE NICs, PCIe NVMe SSD, USB 3.1 expansion cards, and QM2 cards. QNAP TS-x77 Ryzen-based NAS Solutions Now Available
  4. I'll give Veritas credit, their partnerships have gone way up this year. I'm sure that's a major part of their strategy to not get left behind by the competition.
  5. I think Pure's sustainability problem is more revenue related, but we'll see.
  6. Intel Optane 900P vs Samsung 950 PRO

    I concur with this guy ^
  7. We don't measure sound...over the last few years they've all been pretty similar to a naked ear in a home or office environment. Of course you probably have higher standards.
  8. I'll share this with SW and let them provide a proper response.
  9. It could be...we tested it in a house with poor access spots and those went away with the Orbi.
  10. Meh, that sucks. Probably worth working through with Seagate then.
  11. Who told you to upgrade the firmware? HDD firmware very rarely needs to be updated and as you're finding, it's not exactly a walk in the park.
  12. 12TB performance reviews?

    They won't be, but at least you'll get to see the delta in NAS to that desktop drive we reviewed already.
  13. 12TB performance reviews?

    We have Ironwolf and Ironwolf Pro 12TB coming maybe this week, but definitely next.
  14. I'm thinking HAMR is too expensive to get reliable and so this is the next best (better?) option. We've talked with the HDD guys for years and they've always complained about the viability of HAMR.
  15. Hah, that's a good point. I think when compared to 12TB available today, 40TB sounds like a large number. But we have SSDs that are 40TB today, so you're right, it's kinda meh.
