Re: Zimbra Collaboration Server Open Source Edition is a promising low-end package

The reason, I suspect, is because many people don't understand how i/o subsystems really work. I know some of the companies I've helped out are more interested in total storage capacity, and have no clue regarding the difference the number of spindles/channels/paths makes. I even had one customer ask me why their server needed so many drives, when he could go to Fry's and pick up a single terabyte drive for roughly what one disk in the array was costing.
