Drobo iSCSI SAN storage is designed to provide reliable and high performance storage to servers running business-critical applications like data protection, email, and server virtualization. It connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers.

iSCSI SAN for business-critical
Shows a dedicated iSCSI SAN for business-critical applications and server virtualization, which provides high performance, reliability, and security. Volumes created on a Drobo are assigned to a server, resulting in the server thinking it has locally attached storage.

Multi-Host Connectivity
Have multiple servers that need storage? No problem. The Drobo 12-bay iSCSI SAN storage for Business connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers.

Up to 12 Disks of Instant Expansion to 36TB and Beyond
Grow your storage to meet your data capacity needs with minimal effort. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all twelve drive bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology found on Drobo 12-bay iSCSI SAN storage for Business enables you to mix and match capacities, drive brands and speeds. This allows for continuous expansion as drive capacities grow. With Drobo, expansion is automatic, instantaneous and access to data is always maintained.

Smart Volumes with Thin Provisioning
Create new volumes in seconds and manage up to 16TB volumes over time with ease. The innovative and time-saving Smart Volume management technology with Thin Provisioning integrated into the Drobo B800i allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of disks rather than a specific physical disk allocation. The labor of resizing and migrating volumes is replaced with the simplicity of intelligent engineering. Smart Volumes are also data aware, allowing deleted data blocks to be returned to the common pool and ensuring that volumes remain as efficient as possible over time.

Automated Data-Aware Tiering
Automated Data-Aware Tiering SANs allow businesses to consolidate storage resources and share that storage across all connected servers and their applications. The Drobo B1200i moves beyond the days of manually tuning an array for applications that have different storage requirements. Automated Data-Aware Tiering leverages high-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) paired with high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) to deliver application-optimized storage that requires no manual tuning.*

Designed for IT Environments
The B1200i is the first Drobo with serviceable modular components. This hardware design provides a removable controller card; dualredundant, hot-swappable power supplies; and a hot-swappable cooling fan unit. You can source field replaceable units in advance in case of a single hardware component failure, to ensure high uptimes. This delivers the higher level of availability demanded by virtualized IT environments.

Simplify Your VMware Environment
Storage is an integral part of a successful virtualization strategy. Drobo has been tested for use with VMware to eliminate risk from your storage decision and help accelerate deployment of your virtual server environment.

Optimizing Business Applications
Like with business applications, Drobo is ideal for building your first server virtualization cluster and had been certified for VMware vSphere and Citrix Xen Server environments.

Drobo is also a cost-effective way to provide reliable storage for your backup server and has been certified for use with Symantec Backup Exec.

Drobo Care Service and Support Program
The Drobo Care service and support program extends your peace of mind beyond the standard warranty terms for 3 years and beyond. With DroboCare, we're always here to answer your call and if something happens to go wrong, we'll send you a replacement Drobo right away.
