Easily add up to 24TB of storage to a workstation or small office server without having to learn anything about storage administration. Just insert up to 8 disk drives into the DroboPro and the innovative BeyondRAID™ technology takes care of the rest.
DroboPro is ideal for creative professionals, such as photographers and videographers, who have large amounts of rich media to store and protect. Also, DroboPro is an excellent alternative to internal RAID for a single server.
The DroboPro storage array is available from $1,499 US.
Grow your storage in line with your data capacity needs with minimal effort. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard disk drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all eight drive bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology in DroboPro enables you to mix and match disk brands, capacities, and speeds. This enables continuous expansion as drive capacities grow. With DroboPro expansion is automatic and instantaneous and access to data is always maintained.
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 DroboPro, potentially saving you hours or days of downtime.
DroboPro is equally at home in a rack mount environment as it is on your desktop. Dual smart fans automatically manage their speeds to optimize both cooling and operating noise. (DroboPro rack mount sold separately.)
Create new volumes in seconds and manage up to 16 x 16TB volumes over time with ease. The innovative and time-saving Smart Volume management technology with Thin Provisioning integrated into DroboPro 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.
Attach DroboPro directly to a workstation or small office server that requires high-capacity, protected storage. Interface options include Gigabit Ethernet (using iSCSI protocol), FireWire 800, and USB 2.0, with iSCSI providing the highest level of performance.
Unfamiliar with iSCSI? It’s a high performance protocol that’s become extremely popular for storage technology in IT environments, but it can often be complex to manage. DroboPro changes that by introducing zero-click iSCSI configuration for both Windows and Mac OS X.
