Hi Robert,

We use ONLY Western Digital harddrives here. Either the RE3, RE4 or the
Black series. These have all worked well for us over several years. I think
we've only changed 2 or 3 drives the past 2 years. Not bad at all.

Med vennlig hilsen / Best regards,

I am going to populate a 20 disk array relatively shortly and while I have
not decided to make a 20Tb or 40Tb array I was wondering what drives people
are using for populating disk array systems these days. The controller is a
Atto R380 and the box is a 20 disk SAS backplane style setup. I am thinking
that a Astek 33606 SAS expander for the box but I would be curious to know
the thoughts about SAS expanders as well.

The Array is for a DaVinci Resolve on OSX box which I am currently running
on a Rocket-Raid 2214 Sata controller.
