DROBO PRO


Drobo Pro has everything that you are looking for in a storage device. Mostly, this model is aimed at small businesses and individuals with large quantities of data. The appliance has a full 8 SATA I/II bays, each holding up to 2TB drives, creating a maximum of 16 terabytes of storage. Drobo Pro features the manufacturer company’s most intelligent management and monitoring system. The device will set itself up without any kind of intervention from you. You can mix capacity drives with an option of hot-swapping, meaning you can replace or add drives when in single or dual-redundancy modes, without a second of downtime. Moreover, this function is also automated, all you have to do is just to put a new driver in, and it will configure itself in a matter of seconds. You can also flip the device either way as many times as you want while Drobo Pro is working on all the details for you. In case you have a HUGE data, there is a possibility for you to hookup up to 16 different DroboPros together, each of them stacking up to 16TB, and make it as one virtual device of storage. This model is equipped with a USB 2.0 port (which is pretty fast and reliable), 2 FireWire 800 ports (which are backward compatible with FireWire 400 if you have a right adapter) and of course a Gigabit Ethernet jack, for ultra-fast iSCSI protocol and performance in general. This is a great purchase for people with a lot of data.
