With 100 Drobos
With 100 Drobos I would create my own small hosting company for file storage. This would of course be after I built a gigabit ethernet LAN to support them, and worked with Verizon FiOS to up my speed to their new secret 100-150Mbps up/down speeds. All this would be needed to allow the Drobos to properly breathe. Would also build more than a hand full of powerful servers (always wanted to do that) to run things on the network. I know the Drobos are smart but you have to have management with such a large team of experts. Oh and let's not for get the cooling, perhaps a third AC unit would be in order! Who knows I might even name them all and give them faces. You never know with me.
