Drobo model B800fs connects seamlessly to your existing Ethernet network and supports both Windows and Mac computers.Drobo Apps give you the freedom to customize your Drobo to meet your own unique set of requirements.

BeyondRAID Technology
A Drobo model B800fs can hold up to 16 TB 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 systems, 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, instantaneous, and access to data is always maintained.

Drobo can protect from single or dual drive failures and has a virtual hot spare capability ensuring all drives are used as all times.

Share Files Directly from Drobo
Drobo model B800fs connects directly to your Ethernet network to make sharing your data easy. Just plug it into any switch and you are ready to go.

The Drobo model 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.

Connect to Drobo, and access shared data, using any Windows, Mac, or UNIX/Linux1 computer. Drobo natively supports CIFS/SMB and AFP network protocols and NFS can be added by installing a Drobo App.

Drobo Sync
Drobo Sync is the intelligent and easy to use replication tool built into the Drobo model B800fs. It is designed to provide offsite protection to all data hosted on a Drobo, guarding against major disasters like fire, flood, and theft.

Drobo Sync management is integrated into Drobo Dashboard and is configured with just a few clicks. From there on out, data replication is fully automated. After the first replication job is complete, only new files or changed parts of existing files are transferred, making it efficient for moving data over the Internet to a remote location.

Offsite Data Protection
The Drobo model B800fs includes an intelligent and easy-to-use data replication tool that can seamlessly backup your valuable data from one Drobo to another somewhere 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.

Seamless Integration with Apple Time Machine
With support for any backup application that can store data on a network share, file sharing Drobos deliver the most seamless support for Apple Time Machine of any network storage system on the market today. Using Time Machine with Drobo is as easy as clicking one box in the Drobo Dashboard software, with no need for confusing and complex configuration.

All Drobos have carrier less drive insertion. This means there are no special parts or screws that have to be added to the drives before they are inserted. Its like inserting a cassette tape into a video recorder.

Drobo model B800fs is designed to be rack mounted, but it is also compact and quiet, making it ideal for workgroup environments that need storage located in an office or on a desk.

Even the faceplate is magnetic, with the manual is on the back. Primary management is by using status lights and visual capacity gauge.

And, all Drobos look good too!
