The Storinator Jr. includes 16 2.5” SATA drives, a CM4 on the official IO Board, and an LSI 9405W-16i HBA. It is limited to around 400 MiB/sec storage throughput, but since it only has 1 Gbps Ethernet, that’s not going to be a bottleneck if you just use it for network storage.

45Drives even compiled in ZFS and did some benchmarking—it wasn’t amazingly performant, but it did work :)

To get to production, they would need to do some extra performance validation, change the SSD mounting orientation, and possibly switch to a DC power input jack.
