    Thanks, perfect reply... as always!

    I did not have the time to examine the msi (was not in front of the machine), but I expected it to be something as silly

    Why do you want to violate the EULA? Why not use StarWind in such a case? With the most recent versions there's no served capacity limitation and StarWind can do caching and dedupe. Something Microsoft is offering with Windows Server 8 only.

    I never said anything about violating anything, I just do not like stupid restrictions

    Great stuff, didn't know there's deduplication even in the free version. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I'm gonna have to check that out. :)

    We're in the same boat - I really hate them. Especially speed limits :))

    Good luck! If you'd manage to run it against the most recent ZFS implementation from say OpenIndiana please bother yourself to share some numbers :)

    Starwind works great on Core, and even without tweaks I get very decent speed considering the **** hardware used
