CMS Distribution have been the authorised distributor for Drobo since 2007, supporting reseller partners with business and technical services.
Drobo make award-winning data storage products for small and medium businesses and individual professionals that provide an unprecedented combination of sophisticated data protection and management features, affordable capacity, and ease-of-use.
With over 50 industry awards and hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide, they have demonstrated success solving the three major storage challenges in one device – data protection, capacity adjustment and application service-level optimisation – through patented BeyondRAID™, Thin Provisioning / Reclamation and the breakthrough Automated Data-Aware Tiering technology.
Drobo automates the process of keeping your customers data safe and protected. Cali Lewis explains the many ways Drobo can be used in the home or business. Drobo allows users to mix and match which hard drive sizes that work best for their situation, is easy to use and makes life easy when protecting and storing data.
Drobo RAID makes achieving the redundant protection the users data easy to accomplish. With every Drobo they get the redundant protection of much more expensive storage in a format they don’t have to configure or manage. BeyondRAID technology, built into every device, delivers all of the benefits of traditional RAID, but leaves the limitations and complexity behind combining enhanced protection, reliability, expandability and ease-of-use.
Users can purchase the capacity they need now and increase space by adding additional disk drives, or by just swapping smaller disks with larger ones later. If a drive fails, the device automatically protects data without user intervention. In addition, when capacity is added, it is instantly available so there is never any downtime. Drobo even protects against one or two simultaneous drive failures with just one click.
Upgrading with Drobo
Seamlessly upgrade to a new device by simply removing the disk pack from the current system and move it to a new Drobo. Upgrading not only gives users an instant performance boost, but it also delivers all the other benefits of the new Drobo.
