What Is Drobo?
Our customers think of us as a hard drive that is NEVER FULL AND NEVER FAILS. Hard drives get full and wear out. A single drive failure can lose your data. Not so with Drobo.
Meet your new storage solution, the safe and expandable Drobo. It's so simple that anyone can use it, yet powerful enough for business. Drobo plugs into Mac and Windows systems for redundant data protection without the complexities of RAID.
Dynamically expand storage any time. Drobo holds up to 24 TB in from four to eight drive bays using any combination of 3.5" SATA drives. It comes with FireWire, USB, eSATA, Ethernet, and iSCSI connectivity options, so you get the data protection you need with the speed and interface you want.
Redundant Protection, No Headaches
Drobo provides the redundant protection of much more expensive storage, in a format you don't have to configure or manage. We call this BeyondRAIDTM technology. You'll call it peace of mind.
With Drobo, buy just the storage you need now and change it as your data grows. Mix and match drive brands, capacities, and speeds. Replace your smallest drive with a larger one and immediately use the new capacity in a matter of seconds, not hours! It's a simple as inserting the new drive into the slot. Expand up to 24 TB on a single volume as larger drive sizes become available. Drobo creates one large storage pool. Dive in and eliminate the need for multiple external storage drives and devices.
FireWire 800, USB 3.0, eSATA, iSCSI, Ethernet, File Sharing
Safety and quick access go hand in hand with Drobo. Whether directly attaching to your personal computer, sharing files with others over the network, or backing up a business application—Drobo's the optimal choice.
Windows and Mac OS
Drobo connects to Windows and MacOS systems and supports NTFS, HFS+, and FAT32 file formats. Everyone can take advantage of simple, powerful, complete Drobo data protection.
Plug In Peace of Mind
Just plug in Drobo and your data protection is all set up. Add disks at any time for additional protected capacity. Drobo can even solve problems by itself. Lights on the front tell you what's happening—if you can read a traffic light, you're already a Drobo expert.
Take a look at how the lights on the front work on a four-bay Drobo and they work the same way on all Drobo models.
