OverviewSuggest Edit

Drobo is changing the way the world stores digital data. Our products are designed to ensure data is always protected and accessible in a way that is dramatically simple to configure, expand, and manage. Drobo storage systems are the first to provide the data protection of traditional RAID without the complexity. Drobo's innovative BeyondRAID technology automates data protection, freeing users from making the difficult and time consuming choices of “Which RAID level to deploy?”, and makes expansion as easy as inserting a new drive vs. hours or days of configuration. Drobo is privately held and headquartered in Santa Clara, California.
