A single eSATA connector for a box holding 4 disks?
Do you have a link to a sample of such enclosure?
In or via Europe for example there is Fantec brand
They have e.g. 8-bay enclosure with usb3 and esata via portmultiplier
backplane or something
Look for FANTEC QB-X8US3-6G
There is also a 4bay case by them
I am not in for the speed, so mdraid software based with single esata
and port multiplier would suffice for me as I am not in for high speed
reads or writes, but I am looking into a robust and resilient setup
which is not too complicated.
Meanwhile I have read about all sorts of problems of the btrfs builtin
raid there, so I guess i will stay away from that, and zfs is also
kind of exotic for opensuse? guess it will be some raid10 or raid6
then via mdadm.
