Drobo Introduces DroboPix – Innovative App That Uploads and Organizes Mobile Photos and Videos

DroboPix expands the myDrobo platform and allows 5N and B810n owners to seamlessly upload photos and videos from their iOS device

SANTA CLARA, CA. – July 19th, 2016DroboTM, the maker of award winning storage solutions for businesses, professionals and consumers, today launched a mobile photo and video upload app, DroboPix, as part of the company’s continuing efforts to bring simple, safe and secure solutions to its customers.

DroboPix is part of the myDrobo suite of software applications that makes managing important data effortless. The DroboPix app allows 5N and B810n owners the ability to automatically upload and organize photos and videos seamlessly within their local Wi-Fi network. Using DroboPix is simple. Users walk into their home or office where the app recognizes the network, verified by the geolocation, and new photos and videos are uploaded automatically. The geolocation verification and usage of the user’s Wi-Fi adds two layers of security, while the transfer over Wi-Fi conserves battery power and cellular data usage.

Customers can access uploaded pictures and videos on their Drobo via NAS shares, from a web browser or directly from a mobile device using DroboAccess, another app available on the myDrobo Platform.

The Growing Storage Needs of Mobile Customers

High-resolution photos and 4K videos consume large amounts of storage and the management of these files becomes complex over time. In addition, cloud backup services can become an expensive proposition beyond a certain threshold and privacy is always a concern.

DroboPix is a key software application that enhances the functionality of a Drobo NAS device and provides a cloud-like experience, while fulfilling the security concerns all mobile customers have.
Once the images are safely stored on a Drobo, the unprecedented flexibility, data protection and expandability of the solution speaks for itself.

“DroboPix is the latest app in the myDrobo suite that continues our commitment to simplicity through innovation of our storage solutions,” said Mihir Shah, CEO of Drobo. “Our focus as a company is to make our customers more productive by saving them time. Managing pictures and videos can be complex and time consuming, especially on a mobile device, so we wanted to make it as simple as possible.”

Drobo Continues to Focus on Customer Experience and Requirements

Today’s high paced world needs storage solutions that evolve with customer needs. It’s also important that those solutions ensure that a user’s data is safe from unauthorized access, secure from drive failure, and is simple for all users to use. The myDrobo suite of software applications creates a storage solution that keeps pace with user requirements and extends the functionality of Drobo NAS devices.

Availability

DroboPix is currently available for free to 5N and B810n owners on the Drobo Dashboard. The iOS application is now available in the App Store. Learn more about DroboPix and the myDrobo suite of applications at www.drobo.com/mydrobo-platform/.
