thunderbolt sata dock or enclosure no raid frippery

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sagacious Himself @ 6:36 am

There are few choices to merely access sata drives externally via thunderbolt.

usb3 is very-not-attractive especially when one’s device is thunderbolt equipped.

No raid frippery is wanted, thanks.

startech thunderbolt sata enclosure aluminum active cooling daisy chain capable needs better fan no raid5 folly or other raid frippery bring your ZFS A game

I’d like to add a [needlessly space consumptive] game(s) drive and portable it with me elsewhere(s).

Bunches of drives for NAS?  Sure, but not this.  I need only connect a single drive.  No such option.  Minimally two sata drives via thunderbolt.

Of the FEW options only StarTech had the foresight to provide for daisy chaining 🙂

For manyness of drives in NAS we only accept ZFS as should you. Apply the simple (minimum) ZFS rule:

2 gigs ram : 1 tb drive space

 

Please refrain from gushing raid5 tribalisms here.
