Hi all,

recently acquired a Quanta JBOD that I’ll do a write up on...

But it turns out the JBOD has SATA interposers instead of SAS ones for its drive bays..

meaning it’s now time to look for bulk Sata drives I can use in the array.

looking for PMR/CMR disks and not shingled.

If you're limited to 2.5" drives, you might just want to look at SSDs. There does not seem to be a lot of selection and most of them seem to cost in the ballpark of SSDs in any case. I think they max out at about 5tb (not sure if those are shingled or not).
