DROBOSHARE


DroboShare is a new companion product for the Drobo USB storage devices. Its main function is to extend Drobo’s protected storage on to other computers which are on the same network. As you are already aware, Drobos are using RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) technology, which guarantees that your data is protected all the time, even in case of a multiple hard drive fail. DroboShare main goal is to keep things as simple as possible by avoiding more compounded stuff, but, on the other hand making it more secure. They achieved this with granular access controls that are found in NAS (Networked Attached Storage) devices. The only security for the access to DroboShare is a user-configured simple password, meaning the people who will be given this password should be trusted in a way that they will not remove other people’s important data. The device claims that it has an ability to autoconfigure itself on networks that use DHCP; this is true from my personal experience. All you have to do is just plug it in and wait for it until it finishes configuring itself. DroboShare is also integrated with the Drobo Dashboard, meaning you can monitor the device from there. Also, alongside with the DHCP, the appliance also has support for SMB. This is a very useful and easy-to-use product mainly for big offices.
