No Headache Data Redundancy

Drobo utilizes a revolutionary storage technology that makes it simple for anyone to use, yet is powerful enough for business. Once you experience the power of Drobo, the idea of keeping multiple external drives or a RAID 5 array will seem as antiquated as that 28.8Kbps modem in the back of your closet.

Incomparable Expandability

Your library of data grows every moment. Now, your storage solution expands in seconds, too. Drobo holds up to four hard drives, can expand at any time, and supports up to 16TB on a single volume as disk sizes increase. Choose how big you want your Drobo today with any combination of drives capacities.

 

 

Speed Demon: FireWire 800 & USB 2.0

Why compromise? Safety and accessibility now go hand in hand. Experience Drobo with both FireWire 800 and USB 2.0. It’s the data protection and peace of mind you need with the performance and interface you want.

 


Hard Drives a la carte

Unlike other storage solutions, Drobo allows you to purchase as much or as little storage as you like up front. Since you can expand at any time, Drobo is the right solution for your budget.


Mac, Windows, Linux*
Drobo works with all three major operating system platforms and their native file systems.

*Linux support currently in Beta.

 


Features

Go Faster with FireWire 800. Vastly Improved USB 2.0.
With FireWire 800 alongside USB 2.0 and an upgraded core processor, Drobo is now the fastest product in its class. It is the perfect solution for both primary and backup storage of large media and productivity files such as video, photos, music, audio, and troves of documents and spreadsheets. In fact, even if you’re now using USB 2.0, the new Drobo is up to three times as fast its predecessor in typical usage.

Consumer Mindset, Enterprise Feature Set.
Drobo was designed to meet a stringent design requirement: Anyone should be able to use Drobo regardless of technical experience. It is ready to go out of the box and will always stay that way. That’s why Drobo is considered a storage robot—it does all the work of managing an enterprise-grade your storage system for you.

No Software or Drivers are Needed!
Drobo’s magic comes from the software that’s built into the hardware called BeyondRAID™ that you’ll never need to configure. Drobo does absolutely everything for you from “automagically” expanding capacity when you add a drive, to self-healing around drive failures and data errors. If you’re the geeky type, Drobo has an optional software utility, Drobo Dashboard, that shows you what Drobo is up to and adds advanced functionality if you desire it.
