comment ZFS in JBOD mode - coping with single drive failure
Ideally, I would want to recover the files that reside on the other drives to limit the recovery effort, but if every file is partially stores on all drives it won't be possible.

comment ZFS in JBOD mode - coping with single drive failure
Losing the pool is not catastrophic, but costs a lot of work. This server is for a side project with no budget, and the data can be recreated (slowly and with some manual work). I may have to reconsider though, living with reduced storage space.

You mean ZFS is no good at all for JBOD setups without redundancy, at all or that I should create the pool in a different way? Even if data is striped, I understood it that the metadata was mirrored across all drives, but maybe I was wrong then.

@ewwhite Could you please elaborate on why I should not choose ZFS and what I should consider instead?

comment Snow leopard: Remote display server?
AquaConnect is just what I was looking for. Might be out of my price range, but at least I know this exists :)
