Data Robotics Unveils Drobo S with 5 eSATA Bays, Better FireWire

Drobo S External Storage

Data Robotics Inc has introduced Drobo S, a professional-class storage solution designed for Windows, Mac, and Linux users. It features five eSATA bays, upgrading from the previous 4 four bays. The company said they have also enhanced the Drobo S’s FireWire 800 throughput by upgrading it by 150 percent.

Built on the company’s award-winning BeyondRAID virtualized storage platform, which eliminates the lock-in of traditional RAID configurations, Drobo S features a one-click toggle between single- and dual-drive redundancy and provides protection against up to two concurrent drive failures.

Data Robotics adds that the Drobo S supports on-the-fly capacity expansion along with the flexibility to replace failed drives, add drives, and swap out drives of varying sizes from disparate vendors without ever losing access to data.

Drobo S is currently available at a starting price of $799 MSRP, with multiple configurations to $1,799 for a 10TB (5x 2TB) solution.
