Drobo B800fs Data Sheet
Drobo model B800fs
Easy-to-Use Network-Attached Storage with Remote Replication
Built on proven BeyondRAID™ technology, the
Drobo B800fs allows the sharing of files with all
computers on the network and keep your vital
business data protected with Drobo Sync offsite
replication. Drobo B800fs connects seamlessly
to your existing Ethernet network and supports
both Windows and Mac computers. DroboApps
give you the freedom to customize your Drobo
to meet your own unique set of requirements.
BeyondRAID Technology
A Drobo B800fs iSCSI array can hold up to 24TB
of raw storage and beyond. To add capacity,
simply insert a new hard drive or replace your
smallest drive with a larger one, even when all
drive bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID, the
BeyondRAID technology in Drobo enables you
to leverage different drive capacities, allowing for continuous expansion as larger drives
become available. With Drobo, expansion is
automatic and instantaneous and access to
data is always maintained, all while protecting
you from two simultaneous drive failures.
Centralized Backup for Your Entire
The Drobo B800fs enables network backup for
Mac and Windows users at small offices or in
workgroup environments:
• Backing up your PC to your Drobo is
as easy as using Drobo with Drobo PC
Backup, now bundled with Drobo, Drobo S,
Drobo FS, and Drobo B800fs.
• The Drobo B800fs delivers seamless
support for Apple Time Machine. Using
Time Machine with Drobo B800fs is as
easy as clicking a box in Drobo Dashboard.

Offsite Data Protection
The Drobo B800fs includes an intelligent and
easy-to-use data replication tool that can
seamlessly back up your valuable data from one
Drobo to another one on your network or across
the Internet to a remote site. Having your data
protected offsite guards you from a major
disaster, resulting in peace of mind.
Share Files Directly from Drobo
Drobo B800fs connects directly to your Ethernet
network to make sharing your data easy. Just
plug it into any switch and you’re ready to go.
The Drobo B800fs has two Gigabit Ethernet
ports that can be configured to fail over if one
link fails or can be set up to connect to two
separate networks—one for your data and the
other for Drobo Sync replication, for example.
Drobo Dashboard
Drobo Dashboard is the single tool to
centrally manage all of your Drobos.
Drobo Dashboard displays status as if
all of your Drobos were right in front
of you with the same status lights and
capacity gauge that are on the front
panel. All administration tasks are
a single click away and there’s even
a built-in data protection tool called
Drobo Copy to easily copy data to
and from your Drobo. Simply, it’s the
easiest way to configure and manage
business-class storage.
Connect to Drobo, and access shared data,
using any Windows or Mac computer. Drobo
natively supports CIFS/SMB and AFP network
Protection from Two Drive Failures
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 singledrive redundancy at any time. Unlike moving
between traditional RAID 5 and RAID 6, there’s
no need to reformat or migrate data from the
Drobo B800fs, potentially saving you hours or
days of downtime.
There is a wide selection of free
DroboApps designed to give you the
freedom to configure and customize your
Drobo B800fs to meet your own requirements. DroboApps are community created
and community supported applications
that add amazing functionality such as
media and web! Find more information @
