I've just finished farming Delta Volanis, Arucanis and Hromi for the lowest 2 tiers of data samples with great success, and great fun as I used one of my long-forgotten tier 3 ships to do it. It seems the exploration clusters still yield the appropriate samples regardless of your current rank. Still, crafting now requires a LOT of samples... no wonder exchange prices are skyrocketing.

The best way to farm, for me, is not to forgo the Explore Unkown System missions, but to use those to farm as well. You just have to avoid the ones with combat as they will slow you down.
