Data Robotics Launches Network Backup for SMBs

InformationWeek SMB: Drobo FS Launches SMB Backup Solution

The Drobo product offers expandability to 10TB, ease of use and advanced RAID technology.

“Data Robotics made a play for the small, remote, and home office markets today with the release of Drobo FS. The storage vendor positions the 5-bay network attached storage (NAS) unit as simple, easy, and expandable to meet the storage needs for small organizations that lack the IT resources to manage more complex storage solutions. The NAS unit incorporates Data Robotics’ BeyondRAID technology and allows users to mix and match drives in the 5 bays as needed and supports PC and Mac network backups.

The flexibility suits the changing needs of small businesses that need more and more storage according to Jim Sherhart, senior director of marketing at Data Robotics. “The average small company has more data than you can put on an external drive,” he said. ‘This [the Drobo FS] allows them to mix and match drives of different sizes to fit their needs.'”
