    Gave up on WHS when there was talk of them dropping Drive Extender - had been an avid fan for at least 2 years prior to that. Onto an always-on unraid setup for the past year now, and havent been happier

    zfs was very tempting also

    I stuck with WHS1. There are a couple of add-ons to put somethign similar in to WHS2 but I haven't time to upgrade at the moment.

    Pretty much what I was about to post. I had been looking into FreeNAS with ZFS for these features but ended up with a Drobo attached to a nettop as my server for the sake of flexibility and ease of administration. If this ends up with good data integrity checking it I suspect W8 will replace many Drobos and FreeNAS systems. The key, however, is data integrity (and the other features of ZFS would be nice too).

    And on a rebuild with 96 disks in an equivalent to RAID 5 you're quite likely to get a URE and lose all your data.
