            Ordering Information

            Built on proven and award-winning BeyondRAID technology, the Drobo model B800fs 8-Bay File Sharing Storage for Business allows the sharing of files with all computers on the network and keep that vital business data protected with offsite replication. 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.

            A Drobo model B800fs can hold up to 16TB 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.

            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 unit 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. Plus, connect to Drobo, and access shared data, using any Windows or Mac computer. Drobo natively supports CIFS/SMB and AFP network protocols and NFS can be added by installing a Drobo App. It also 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.
