Drobo: Small Box, Big Storage

Drobo make award winning data storage products for small and medium businesses and professionals that provide an unprecedented combination of sophisticated management and data protection features, affordable capacity and ease of use.

“Drobo is a storage enclosure,” explains Mario Blandini, VP of Marketing with Drobo. “You put your hard drives into it. It makes all the hard drive turn into a large virtual drive and you get protection in case one of those fails. Footage that you take is priceless. The time that you spent editing it is even more priceless. You want to protect yourself from a hard drive failure. With Drobo technology you can tolerate a drive failure, even two hard drive failures and never have to worry about your data.”

Unlike other storage options, Drobo lets users hot-swap drives, mix and match drives of different capacities, speeds, and types (SATA / SAS / SSD), and perform zero-support drive pack migration. This means that customers can optimize storage economies without worrying about drive order, data loss, downtime, or compatibility. They can swap in drives as needed, while the Drobo is running.

Drobo, which launched in June 2007, is privately held and headquartered in San Jose, California, with sales offices worldwide.
