Performance Good
Interoperability Good
Manageability Good
Scalability Fair
Security Good
JMRs StorBlade is a solid storage solution in a nice little 1U form factor. However, although its a good way to add storage in small spaces, the StorBlade will probably not replace standard RAID systems in most organizations.

COST ANALYSIS

The starting price of the StorBlade is fair considering the space savings it will afford. But IT managers would be better served buying a standard-size RAID unit if space savings is not high on the priority list.

(+) Easy to deploy; small form factor.

(-) Holds only four drives.
