The World’s First Storage Robot
Drobo is an easy-to-use desktop storage array that plugs into your Mac, PC or
Linux system via hi-speed USB 2.0. Drobo enables users to reliably store up to
16TB of data, using any combination of 3.5” SATA I or II drives - within four drive
bays. Drobo provides the data redundancy features normally associated with
RAID such as mirroring and data striping, without the complexities of RAID.
Drobo, will create one large pool of protected expandable storage, enabling you
to avoid managing multiple external drives.
WHO USES DROBO AND WHY?
Drobo is an ideal solution for professionals and
individuals who need to store large amounts
of data. Drobo enthusiasts include small
business owners, creative professionals,
Drobo guards everything on it
Even when a drive fails or data becomes corrupted, you’re protected. There are many
advanced data redundancy and integrity checks built into Drobo.
Drobo makes storage a breeze
If you can read a traffic light, you’re a certified Drobo expert. Drobo uses simple LED
lights to inform you about free capacity and drive status.
graphic designers, photographers, video
editors, and educators amongst others. We
recommend combining Drobo with the optional
DroboShare companion if you also need to
share your data over a local area network.
Drobo offers unlimited capacity upgrades
Use ANY drive you want, regardless of SIZE. Need to add capacity? Pop in a new hard
drive or pop out an existing one and replace it with a bigger one. Drobo has an
insatiable appetite for adding storage capacity. It can even extend to 16TB as hard
disk sizes increase.
Drobo does not require drivers or software

Use Drobo right out of the box – with zero configuration. You’ll never have to worry
about using a management console either. Drobo has the familiar benefits of RAID,
without the complexity.
DroboShare it on your network
Connect your Drobo to a DroboShare and share your data over Gigabit Ethernet (GigE).
With DroboShare, everybody on your network can benefit from the storage capabilities
of Drobo.
Drobo is Windows, OS X, & Linux Friendly
We don’t care if you’re a Mac, PC, or Linux*. We’re proud to support NTFS, HFS+,
EXT3, and FAT32 file systems. If you connect your Drobo to a DroboShare, you can
share with all three operating systems or other devices like media centers, regardless
of the file system you’ve chosen for Drobo. *Linux support now in beta.
