Best Near Line storage

Video Kevin, B&H Photo
29 January 2015
  • Excerpt: We have had a Drobo Pro for over 6 years as a near line storage solution. While it does not have high speed transfer capabilities, it's design of a dynamic storage environment allowing easy expansion is phenomenal. As drive sizes increase you can just add single drives to increase capacity. Other NAS solutions generally require you to upgrade all of the drives at the same time. This can be inconvenient at best. The software makes this system very easy to manage.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
  • Cons: Slow

Couldn't be happier with this product

Baker, Lewis, Schwisow & Laws, PLLC, Amazon
26 January 2015
  • Summary: Our law firm purchased two of these and we have one in each of our two geographically separated offices. We are using Drobo Sync to synchronize the two devices. It was very simple to set up and manage. Even an average level tech type person could figure it out pretty easily with a little investigation and/or a phone call to the Drobo folks.

Home use ONLY!

  • Summary: For home use it's ok. Don't EVER EVERY think about using ANY Drobo device for a company you work for. These guys have no clue how Enterprise storage should be!!

If this was faster, it would be a five star product

Michael Hoffmeister, Amazon
7 January 2015
  • Summary: It was easy enough to set up and get going. I loaded 8 4TB NAS drives. It seems to be reliable but SLOW. You could use it for most applications but for disk intensive things like backup or video editing, it isn't cutting it. They supply a software dashboard but aside from setup, it doesn't do much. For example, I have a file on the Drobo I can't seem to read. There are no diagnostics to help me. What I wouldn't give for a Drobo chkdsk!

Poor security, really slow

Jim, B&H Photo
19 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Needed a large amount of raid storage for images, video,and documents. The product description looked great, although some of the reviews suggested transfer rates were slow. But I got it anyway.It really is slow, very slow transfer rates, like 20 to 30 MB/sec over a dedicated gigabit network. If you have small files, no big deal. But if you transfer large files, >1GB, it will take hours, or days even.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable
  • Cons: Poor Security, Slow
