The data hunt commences as you stare at the 10 external hard drives scattered across the desk. The agonizing process starts as you plug in each drive, searching for a project from years ago. As you plug in your last drive, the inevitable occurs, generating a wave of panic. The drive shows no signs of life, and all data is lost.
This is a story heard repeatedly from creative professionals, small businesses, and home users. In many cases, it’s too late to recover the data and could cost thousands of dollars for drive recovery services. Using multiple hard drives to store data, not only provides limited protection, but it also creates a time-consuming and complicated workflow.
Drobo makes award-winning data storage products for Small and Medium Businesses and Individual Professionals that provide an unprecedented combination of sophisticated data protection and management features, affordable capacity, and ease-of-use. With over 50 industry awards and hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide, Drobo has demonstrated success solving the three major storage challenges in one device – data protection, capacity adjustment, and application service-level optimization – through patented BeyondRAID™, Thin Provisioning / Reclamation, and the breakthrough Automated Data-Aware Tiering technology.
Unlike other storage options, Drobo lets users hot-swap drives, mix and match drives of different capacities, speeds, and types (SATA / SAS), 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.
