Product Description

The labour of resizing and migrating volumes is replaced with the simplicity of intelligent engineering. 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 single-drive redundancy at any time. Unlike moving between traditional RAID 5 and RAID 6, there's no need to reformat or migrate data from DroboPro, potentially saving you hours or days of downtime. DroboPro is equally at home in a rack mount environment as it is on your desktop. Dual smart fans automatically manage their speeds to optimize both cooling and operating noise. (DroboPro rack mount sold separately.) Attach DroboPro directly to a workstation or small office server that requires high-capacity, protected storage. Interface options include Gigabit Ethernet (using iSCSI protocol), FireWire 800, and USB 2.0, with iSCSI providing the highest level of performance.  Unfamiliar with iSCSI? It's a high performance protocol that's become extremely popular for storage technology in IT environments, but it can often be complex to manage. DroboPro changes that by introducing zero-click iSCSI configuration for both Windows and Mac OS X.

Main Features:

  • Up to 8 Disks of Instant Expansion to 24TB and Beyond
  • Smart Volumes with Thin Provisioning
  • Protection from Two Drive Failures
  • Rack Mount Ready, Desktop Quiet
  • Triple Interface Featuring iSCSI
