Product information: Drobo Storage Robot v2Meet your new primary storage, the second generation of the safe, expandable Drobo storage robot. It’s so simple anyone can use it, yet powerful enough for business. Drobo plugs into Mac, PC and Linux systems for redundant data protection without the complexities of RAID. Dynamically expand storage any time; Drobo holds up to 16TB in four drive bays using any combination of 3.5” SATA drives. It comes with FireWire 800 and USB 2.0, 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 BeyondRAID 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 n’ 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! Hot swap up to 16TB on a single volume as drive sizes grow larger. Drobo creates one large storage pool. Dive in and eliminate the need for multiple external storage drives and devices.
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.
