Just Arrived: Data Robotics adds the new DroboPro FS to the family!

Posted on Oct 27, 2010 in Announcements, News: Computers & Solutions, Drobo

What do you get if you make a Network-Attached Storage device with more than the five-drive bays of the Drobo FS, and also want redundant network connectivity and a simple way to back up files offsite? A new product by Data Robotics, Inc: DroboPro FS!




The new product has the eight drive bays of the DroboPro and can be physically situated on a desktop or placed in a standard rack mount with an optional kit. It has two Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be used in either a standalone mode to connect to a different subnet or in a redundant network protection mode.

And unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology in DroboPro FS enables you to mix and match drive capacities, brands and speeds. This unprecedented flexibility allows for continuous expansion as available hard drive capacities increase. Just plug in your DroboPro FS and data protection is all set up with no configuration required. Also with the new Drobo Sync¹ capabilities you can seamlessly backup your valuable data from one DroboPro FS to another somewhere on your network.

With DroboPro FS, expansion is automatic, instantaneous and access to data is always maintained.

Furthermore, your data is safer than ever with the self-healing "virtual hot spare" technology incorporated into DroboPro FS. If a drive fails, DroboPro FS keeps your data in the safest state possible by automatically moving your data to the available space on the remaining healthy drives returning to the highest level of drive failure protection possible.

Using a Mac? Not to worry.

Just connect to your DroboPro FS using any Windows, Mac, or UNIX/Linux computer ². Whatever system you have, it's likely you'll be able to connect to it over your network quickly and easily!
