    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    Technical Support!! I almost forgot this. Are there any technical support, phone or chat or email, available for EOL products? My experience with Ubiquiti, they don't have phone support but they have live chat 24/7. I have ran into issues like factory reset did not work, clients suddenly cannot...

    Cache plans for ZFS server

    Are you saying layout ZFS pools as so: Primary Pool: stripe all drives (i.e., no RAIDZ redundancy/mirror) caching not needed (even RAM?)
