It's nice that it's there but can you chain them like the R6?

it looks like you can, according to the website

"With six Drobo 5D arrays in a chain, you can have up to 96 TB of usable capacity. And, the bi-directional 10 Gbps performance of Thunderbolt allows all devices in the chain to achieve maximum throughput."

I thought you could only chain three thunderbolt in a row? At least that is what you can do with the R6.

I'm sort of pissed because I just bought 2 Drobo S (USB 3) and dumped 20TB worth of drives in them. I would have bought the 5D and chained them with TB and USB 3 to the host.... well poop.
