From: RAOT (Redundant Arrays of Other Things :-)

Pinnacle Micro has been advertising what they call the Orray --
essentially RAID done with removable magneto-optical disk drives. They
claim sustained transfer rates up to 8 MB/sec., which seems
implausible given that it's only four drives, and even HP MO drives
are below 2 MB/sec. sustained. Apparently no redundancy in the system
for that configuration (so I guess my ROAT designator is a misnomer),
but it should be generally less necessary for MO than magnetic disk
(drive failures normally don't result in the destruction of data or
media).
