Drobo Pro

Drobo is Network Attached Storage Unit with its proprietary software for storage expandability and hardware/software fail-over. You can choose any size hard drive and mix them up in the storage to create larger volumes. With 8-Bay storage you can use the 2TB drives to get 16 TB worth of storage.

It can only connect using iSCSI, Firewire 800, and USB 2.0. What I would want is dual ethernet connection, that would be fantastic with the enterprise level hardware. The best part is that this new storage is rackmountable with fans. Its a separate option but a very smart option in the design.

The price of the Drobo Pro is $1300 doesn’t include any disks. Its nice to have a ridiculous amount of storage.
