Data Robotics has released its first small and medium businesses (SMBs) data storage system that manages itself.

The new storage device convey a completely simplified storage experience enhanced by advanced self-monitoring and self-healing functionality allowing small and medium businesses to protect uptime in the face of constant data growth.

The ability to survive two drive failures and DroboPro's high-speed iSCSI interface make it the ideal primary storage for our mission-critical applications server, said Wayne Titus, owner, AMDG Financial.

A bigger, faster, safer, easier and rack mountable storage allows data survive two simultaneous drive failures and is designed to help fill data voice by bringing RAID 2.0 to small businesses, branch offices, and franchise locations using Microsoft Small Business Server and Microsoft Exchange.

It's critical that our company's data is always accessible. Devoting time and resources to manage our storage is challenging, especially as our data continues to grow each year, Titus said. Because DroboPro manages the RAID levels automatically, we no longer need to buy more storage than we need today in anticipation of estimated future requirements,” he continued.

A fully loaded with 16 TB of storage in its eight hot-swappable bays including rack-mountable units can cost up to $3,995. Without drives the Drobo Pro starts at $1,299(it accepts any SATA hard drive).
