I have salivated over Drobo for a few years now. RAID configuration on the desktop that is not a bulky rackspace is definitely something I geek out on. Therefore, when we saw Data Robotics Drobo, I had to go over and see what was new for this year.
The first drive is the 4 drive Drobo has a USB or Firewire solution for $399. The Drobo S is 5 bay with eSATA and Single or Dual drive redundancy so it could be shared between two people. The 8 Bay Pro is for a single server solution. It has iSCSI and direct attachment in.
However, the Elite is my favorite. It’s an iSCSI SAN with support up to 16 Servers. It’s a cost effective solution for $6,000 for any small business.
