Drobo The Storage Robot

This little device could be easily dismissed, at first glance, as simple external USB hard drive.  Though it's nothing more than a multi-drive external storage device that runs a multi-drive RAID array (RAID level not indicated in the spec), its auto-formatting, auto-repair, auto-expansion and capacity sensing capabilities are pretty impressive.


Drobo The Storage Robot

Robotic Operations
Drobo is programmed to take actions on your behalf; always ensuring it's keeping your data safe and optimized:
  • Auto-formatting of added drives
  • Auto-repair of data after drive failure
  • Auto-repair of data corruption
  • Auto-repair of data redundancy
  • Auto-expansion of storage pool (when drives are added or upsized)
  • Auto-sense & display of capacity used
Consolidated Capacity
Regardless of how many hard drives are installed, your Mac or PC sees one large drive:
  • Consolidation of storage into large pool
  • Accessible via High-Speed USB 2.0
  • Accepts one to four drives.
Hmm... Seems like something we ought to evaluate I do believe.  Watch the demo here.  It's a rather impressive little fella actually.
