Drobo B800i Review

  • Summary: When it comes to ease of use and gigabit-saturating transfer speeds, the Drobo B800i doesn't disappoint. It took just minutes to get the system up and running and when disk failure was simulated, it was back at full operating speeds in no time. For small business and enterprise users, this translates into dollars saved and increased productivity that could otherwise be wasted during downtime.
  • Pros: Very good performance, even when in degraded modes, Fresh out of the box to online in a handful of minutes, Data-aware BeyondRAID can rebuild an array in a fraction of the time of normal RAID, Symantec Backup Exec, Veeam Backup, VMware vSphere, and Citrix XenServer support
  • Cons: Very good performance, even when in degraded modes, Fresh out of the box to online in a handful of minutes, Data-aware BeyondRAID can rebuild an array in a fraction of the time of normal RAID, Symantec Backup Exec, Veeam Backup, VMware vSphere, and Citrix XenServer support, High price tag, No 10Gb option
