Data Robotics Drobo SAN Hard Drive Array Business B800i

Built on proven BeyondRAID technology, the Drobo B800i redefines IT economics by delivering award-winning iSCSI SAN storage and advanced capabilities usually reserved for more expensive enterprise solutions.

The Drobo B800i is optimized for small businesses to provide reliable and high-performance storage to servers running applications like file services, data protection, email, and server virtualization. It integrates seamlessly into your TCP/IP network infrastructure and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers.

BeyondRAID TechnologyOptimizing Business Applications
simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all drive bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology in Drobo enables you to leverage different drive capacities, allowing for continuous expansion as larger drives become available. With Drobo, expansion is automatic and instantaneous and access to data is always maintained.Similar to business applications, Drobo is ideal for building your first scalable backup server or server virtualization cluster. It has been certified for Symantec Backup Exec, Veeam Backup, VMware vSphere, and Citrix XenServer environments.

Smart Volumes with Thin ProvisioningAbout iSCSI SANs
Create new volumes up to 16TB in seconds and manage them 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.Unfamiliar with iSCSI? Its a high-performance protocol thats become extremely popular storage networking technology in IT environments, but it can often be complex to manage. Drobo B800i changes that by introducing zero-click iSCSI configuration for both Windows and Mac OS X servers.

Protection from Two Drive FailuresRack Mount Ready, Desktop Quiet
Enable the dual-drive redundancy option to protect your data from failure of up to two hard drives. It's all done with a single click and without ever losing access to your data. Running out of space? Switch back to single-drive redundancy at any time. Unlike moving between traditional RAID 5 and RAID 6, there's no need to reformat or migrate data from the Drobo B800i, potentially saving you hours or days of downtime.Drobo B800i can be deployed in a server room for IT use or on a desktop for workgroup sharing of storage, thanks to its compact design and quiet operation. Dual smart fans automatically manage their speeds to optimize cooling and minimize operating noise. (Drobo B800i Rack Mount sold separately.)
