DROBO GEN 3


Drobo Gen 3 4-bay storage system hard drive is an enclosure that you most probably are looking for. Even though it looks and performs like a RAID array, its features are different. The biggest benefit would be that you will never have to put identical drives inside of it. For example, if you have one 2TB and two 1TB 3.5” internal hard drives, you can put all three of them into the Drobo so you will have a 2.75TB capacity storage. The rest 0.25TB is used for data integrity. Drobo Gen 3 comes with a guarantee that your data will always be fully protected, even in case when one or multiple drives physically fail to run. You will be able to recover your data without any problems with just a single click. It is a perfect option for large-capacity storages that are mainly used in offices, or even backing up your own personal computer, with of course abovementioned extra safety. Drobo Gen 3 features BeyondRAID technology, which gives your data even more protection. Also, this technology is there for automatic configurations. You will also be free of configurations and set ups when you will replace or add a new drive, meaning the BeyondRAID technology will configure it all for you. One more feature from BeyondRAID, is that you will not even have to reboot the Drobo in order to replace the drives. Also, it keeps looking for errors and mistakes in a hard drive in a background mode, even when you are not using the device. This Drobo also comes with a software that enables you to create a separate storage/volume just for Apple’s Time Machine and it will be separate from the one used for the data. Any other direct attached storage device that is using Mac OS’s Disk Utility is also capable . to do this, but the Drobo’s method is significantly much more user-friendly and simple to use. No need to mention the speed of the Drobo, which is ultrafast. In overall, this is a very sophisticated product for your office or even for your home.
