I can't speak to other solutions, but I have been very happy with my Drobo. The fact that it is a proprietary RAID isn't of much concern to me, as long as it does what I need it to do, and it does. Living in Phoenix, equipment cooling is always an issue, especially in the summer, but I have never had any issues with the Drobo.

I do automatic, incremental backups from the Drobo to a machine at my work as well. I am a firm believer in the 3 copies in 2 different buildings.
