Comparision

This isn't really a fair comparision for cost at all, after all the Coraid's devices are SATA and Gigabit Ethernet optimized. also the first comparision (package solution) is a load distributed solution providing a 10gb upstream connection aggregated, so it's quite superior to 19 kurobox/linkstations But still it's a fun comparision to see what opensource hardware and software can get you. The second comparision is probably a bit fairer.

Number 1

  1. 19 blades x 750GB = max 14.25TB

Number 2

  1. 15 blades x 750GB = max 11.25TB

Number 1

19 (4+15) blades (no included hard drives)

vs

Open Source Saves you $2969


Number 2

15 blades no included hard drives

Open Source Saves you $1594

Conclusion

As I said certainly not a fair comparison, the hardware is different (SATA vs PATA) and optimized from a ethernet switching standpoint. But still a savings of between $1600-$2700 is nothing to sneeze at! - Ramuk 23:57, 27 August 2006 (EDT)
