Comparision

This isn't really a fair comparision for cost at all, after all the Coraid's devices are SATA and Gigabit Ethernet optimized. But still it's a fun comparision to see what opensource hardware and software can get you.

15 blades x 750GB = max 11.25TB

15 blades no included hard drives

Coraid

Kurobox + Netgear Switch

Open Source Saves you $1594

Conclusion

As I said certainly not a fair comparison, the Coraid hardware is different (SATA vs PATA) and optimized from a ethernet switching standpoint vs the Kurobox/Linkstation.

But still a savings of $1600 is nothing to sneeze at!
