Drobo, makers of the award-winning data storage products for businesses and professionals, offers a line of sophisticated yet easy-to-use and affordable storage solutions for small and medium businesses. Built on the proven BeyondRAID technology, Drobo delivers advanced capabilities such as thin provisioning and dual drive redundancy, usually reserved for more expensive enterprise solutions. Drobo SAN storage for business is designed to provide reliable and high performance storage to servers running business-critical applications such as back up, email, and server virtualization. Drobo B800i connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers.

All Drobos have carrier-less drive insertion. This means there are no special parts or screws that have to be added to the drives before they are inserted. It's like inserting a cassette tape into a video recorder.

Most modern storage arrays aggregate disks and prevent against single drive failures using a 20-year-old technology called RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks). While RAID has served many businesses well, it requires up-front knowledge of its functionality and has many shortcomings. BeyondRAID technology, built into every Drobo, addresses these shortcomings and makes virtualizing disk drives usable by everyone.

Data-aware tiering
Data-aware tiering SANs allow businesses to consolidate storage resources and share that storage across all connected servers and their applications. The reality is that different applications have different workloads. Transactional databases require different storage behavior than streaming media applications. Traditional storage has treated all workloads as equal, not optimizing for any of them.

Drobo dashboard management
Drobo dashboard is the single tool to centrally manage all of your Drobos. Drobo dashboard gives you status as if all of your Drobos were right in front of you by providing you the same status lights and capacity guage that are on the front panel. All administration tasks are a single click away and there's even a built-in data protection tool called Drobo copy to easily copy data to and from your Drobo. Simply, it's the easiest way to configure and manage business-class storage.

Product Highlights
  • BeyondRAID leverages RAID's protection methodologies and applies these algorithms on top of a robust and flexible storage virtualization platform, thereby removing RAID's limitations and drawbacks. With Drobo, capacity expansion is automatic, instantaneous, and access to data is always maintained
  • Enable the dual-drive redundancy option with a single click to protect your data against two simultaneous hard drive failures, all without ever losing access to your data
  • Instantly expand your available capacity by hot swapping in an additional drive, or replacing an existing drive with a larger-capacity one. You can do this while your Drobo is operating, allowing you to expand capacity with no downtime
  • Drobo has been tested and certified for use with VMware to eliminate risk from your storage decision and help accelerate deployment of your virtual server environment
  • The Virtues of Smart Volumes: Create new volumes in seconds and manage up to 255 volumes with ease. The innovative and time saving Smart Volume management technology integrated into Drobo allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool rather than a specific physical drive allocation, eliminating the need to manage capacity at the volume level. Smart Volumes are also data aware, allowing deleted data blocks to be returned to the common pool and ensuring that volumes remain as efficient as possible over time
