A New Drobo

I helped beta test the original Drobo last year and was impressed with the idea. The device uses a proprietary software to spread your data over the multiple drives in the device to prevent data loss.

Now Data Robotics has announced the "Drobo FireWire Edition". From the company website:

The safe, expandable Drobo™ storage solution protects your data against a hard drive crash, yet can expand dynamically at any time in just seconds. With nothing to configure or manage, Drobo is now the ideal solution for primary storage as well as backup.

New Features Key Features
FireWire 800 (FireWire 400 compatible)
Enhanced USB 2.0 performance
Quieter, cooler operation
Redundant data protection
Hot expandable up to 16TB
Mix n’ match drive capacities
