Product Description

The Drobo B1200i moves beyond manually tuning an array for applications that have different storage requirements. Automated Data-Aware Tiering leverages high capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) paired with high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) to deliver application-optimized storage that requires no manual tuning.  Create new volumes up to 16TB in seconds and manage them over time with ease. The innovative and time-saving Smart Volumes management technology with Thin Provisioning integrated into the Drobo B1200i allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of disks rather than a specific physical disk allocation. The labour of resizing and migrating volumes is replaced with the simplicity of intelligent engineering.  Similar to business applications, Drobo is ideal for building your first server virtualisation cluster, highly available email server, or scalable backup server. Drobo technology has been certified for VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Symantec Backup Exec, and Veeam Backup environments.  The B1200i is the first Drobo with serviceable modular components: removable controller card; dual-redundant, hot-swappable power supplies; and a hot-swappable cooling fan unit. You can source field replaceable units in advance in case of a single hardware component failure, to ensure high up times.

Main Features:

  • BeyondRAID Technology
  • Designed for IT Environments
