The revolutionary Drobo FS was designed with one purpose in mind: to deliver the best file sharing experience ever. From the moment you plug it in and it instantly appears on your desktop, you’ll know there’s nothing like it. The all-in-one Drobo FS is perfect for any connected home, home office, or small office environment needing a simple, safe device for sharing and backing up files over the network.
Like all Drobo storage products, Drobo FS provides redundant data protection without the complexities of RAID. Just plug in your Drobo FS and your data protection is all set up with no configuration required. We call this BeyondRAID™ technology. You’ll call it peace of mind.
The Drobo FS storage array is available from $699 US.
Drobo FS connects directly to a Gigabit Ethernet network to make sharing your data easy. Just plug it into any switch or wireless router and you’re ready to go. You can even connect the Drobo FS directly to the Ethernet port on your computer without having to configure any settings.
Connect to your Drobo FS using any Windows or Mac computer. Multiple computers can access the Drobo FS at the same time, providing storage to your entire network.
Drobo FS holds up to five drives allowing you to effortlessly grow your storage to meet your data capacity needs. To add more space, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all drive bays are full.
And unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID™ technology in Drobo FS enables you to mix and match drive capacities, brands, and speeds. This unprecedented flexibility allows for continuous expansion as available hard drive capacities increase.
