Drobo and Netatalk

I don’t have a Drobo but every day I am getting closer to getting one for backups (what I would really like is an Apple Airport Extreme with FireWire and I would be all set.)

On the other hand, BackMyFruitUp looks very interesting:

BackMyFruitUp adds netatalk (AFP) functionality to a DroboShare. In turn it also adds support for TimeMachine backups to a Drobo via a DroboShare. Effectively it allows for a TimeCapsule-like backup system to a NAS drive. This project is fully tested and stable.

The author also posted some information in the comments section of this post, “Tricking Time Machine into working with a Drobo” by Jeff Smykil.
