Data is much richer than ever. You use your PC to store audio, video, and much more. Drobo combines up to four hard drives into a big pool of protected storage. Easily install hard drives into Drobo for extra storage space on your PC. Start with two drives, grow to four, then upsize smaller drives get Terabytes of protection. Drobo is always ready to carry more storage!
Consumer and small business storage has entered the terabyte era and non-technical users are facing the daunting challenge of managing storage capacities. You're struggling with managing and protecting valuable and costly data. Drobo is the first fully automated storage robot designed to ensure that data is always protected, storage capacity is virtually unlimited and it is exceptionally easy to expand. Drobo limits the amount of human interaction required and includes some of the most advanced automated features available, including self-monitoring, self-healing and an easy-to-understand visual status and alert panel. Drobo frees consumers and small businesses from the time-consuming chore of storage management, enabling them to focus more of their time on personal or professional interests. Data Robotics' sophisticated technology utilizes the principles of storage virtualization combined with the ideals of cybernetics to deliver the first alternative to RAID. This unique combination provides a best-in-class user experience for mass-storage devices, especially in terms of initial set-up, autonomous data protection and future capacity expansion.
Unlike RAID 5-based systems, which often require you to tweak settings, Drobo needs no adjustments: The unit employs its own disk and storage virtualization algorithms to provide automatic data redundancy. Just plug it in, feed it with drives, and use it just like you would any external hard drive - except this one is self-protecting, infinitely expandable, and requires no complex configuration or ma
