And RAID had timeout issues.  It's not surprising because the Pi was not designed for something like this.  Power-up is another issue too. Powering up that many drives at once would cause a big power surge, so the Storinator borrows something from mainframe days. It staggers powering up the drives to reduce the power surge.
