Data Robotics

Data storage systems for small and medium enterprises.

Data Robotics develops automated storage products designed to ensure data is always protected, accessible and simple to manage. The award-winning Drobo® storage arrays are the first to provide the protection of traditional RAID without the complexity. Drobo revolutionary BeyondRAID technology frees users from making the difficult and confining choice of “Which RAID level to deploy?” by providing an unprecedented combination of advanced features and automation, including single and dual disk redundancy, instant expansion, self-monitoring, data awareness, self-healing and an easy-to-understand visual status and alert panel.

Since the launch of the first Drobo array in June 2007, the product family has received critical acclaim from leading industry publications, technology executives, noted bloggers, analysts and digital media enthusiasts. Drobo has received over thirty prestigious awards, including Editors' Choice awards from PC Magazine and Macworld, among others. Drobo, Inc. received Gartner’s “Cool Vendor in Storage, 2008” Award and Fast Company’s, “Fast 50 Reader Favorite Award” in 2008.
