DroboPro is the first business class direct-attached storage array that manages itself. Engineered to be both simple and scalable, the revolutionary BeyondRAID technology incorporated into DroboPro frees businesses of making the difficult and confining choices commonly associated with storage management. DroboPro delivers both enterprise-level data safety and unprecedented expandability, featuring single and dual disk redundancy combined with instant capacity expansion. DroboPro enables companies to devote more resources to business growth and significantly less time and money to managing their storage. DroboPro fits into a rack mount environment or can sit on a desktop. Dual smart fans automatically manage their speed to optimize both cooling and operating noise. Now includes PC Backup Software and Time Machine support as well as Drobo Dashboard 2.0 control panel and 3 terabyte drive support.

No headache dual disk redundancy
Enable the Dual Disk Redundancy option to protect against the simultaneous failure of up to two hard disks. It's all done with a single click, without ever losing access to your data. Running out of space? You can even switch back to single disk redundancy with a click.

Triple interface featuring iSCSI
Attach DroboPro directly to the server or workstation that requires storage or to a shared server or workstation on your network that can provide access to multiple clients.

The virtues of smart volumes
The innovative and timesaving Smart Volume management technology integrated into DroboPro allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of disks rather than a specific physical disk allocation. The labor of resizing and migrating volumes is replaced with the simplicity of intelligent engineering.

Rack mount ready, desktop quiet
DroboPro is equally at home in a rack mount environment as it is on your desktop. Dual smart fans automatically manage their speeds to optimize both cooling and operating noise.


Product Highlights
  • What Is BeyondRAID?: BeyondRAID leverages the same underlying data protection methodologies as traditional RAID, including mirroring and striping with parity; however, BeyondRAID applies these algorithms on top of a robust and flexible storage virtualization platform. This allows for the removal of the limitations and drawbacks normally associated with RAID. DroboPro is easy to use, affordable, safe, and expandable
  • Triple Interface Featuring iSCSI. DroboPro attaches directly to a server or workstation that requires storage, or to a shared server or workstation on a network that can provide access to multiple clients. Interface options include iSCSI (using Gigabit Ethernet), FireWire 800, and USB 2.0. DroboPro reduces the complexity of iSCSI by introducing zero configuration connection establishment for both Windows and Mac OS X
  • Up to 8 Disks for Instant Expansion to 16TB and Beyond. Customers can grow storage in line with their data capacity needs with minimal effort. To add capacity, customers simply insert a new hard disk or replace the smallest disk with a larger one, even when all eight disk bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology found in DroboPro enables IT managers to efficiently mix and match disk brands, capacities and speeds, enabling continuous expansion as disk capacities grow. With DroboPro expansion is automatic and instantaneous, and access to data is always maintained
  • DroboPro's Dual Disk Redundancy option protects against the simultaneous failure of up to two hard disks. Customers can engage this option with a single click, without ever losing access to their data. When it runs out of capacity, customers can switch DroboPro back to single disk redundancy with a click. Unlike moving between RAID 5 and RAID 6, there's no need to reformat or migrate data off of the array, potentially saving hours or days
  • The Virtues of Smart Volumes. Smart Volumes allow customers to create new volumes in seconds and manage 16TB volumes over time with ease. The timesaving Smart Volume management technology integrated into DroboPro allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of disks rather than a specific physical disk allocation. The labor of resizing and migrating volumes is replaced with the simplicity of intelligent engineering
