About Drobo DR-B1200I-1A21-D12

The Drobo 24 TB B1200i SAN Storage Enclosure (12x 2 TB SAS Hard Drives) is a powerful, 12-bay, easy-to-use means of doing so. This Drobo includes twelve enterprise-class 2 TB hard disk drives that have the blisteringly SAS 6 Gbps interface and that offer a total capacity of 24 TB. Even with these drives, the enclosure's capacity can be constantly expanded because its twelve drive bays can hold SATA I or II, SAS, or SSD drives of up to 4 TB piece.

Built on the proven BeyondRAID technology, this Drobo delivers advanced capabilities such as thin provisioning and data-aware tiering, usually reserved for more expensive enterprise solutions. Thin provisioning allows you to expand capacity by switching out one drive with another. Data-aware tiering is a technology that optimizes the use of Drobo SAN storage, depending on the kind of database needs that you have. It also allows you to use SAS, SATA, Solid State drives all in the same enclosure.

For business, this Drobo is designed to provide reliable and high performance storage to servers running business-critical applications such as back up, e-mail and server virtualization. Drobo B1200i connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers. This particular Drobo includes three Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting to your network and one additional Gigabit port for out-of-band management.

Drobo DR-B1200I-1A21-D12 Features

  • BeyondRAID Technology: An iSCSI Drobo can hold up to 48 TB of raw storage and beyond. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all drive bays are full
  • Thin Provisioning as a fundamental capability allows for infinite capacity expansion by just replacing a drive with a larger one
  • Instant Expansion occurs when a new, or larger, drive is inserted without any disruption in service
  • Mixed Drive Utilization allows you to insert any drive, of any size, or any type and Drobo will optimally use it
  • Automatic Protection Levels ensures the best algorithm is used to protect from drive failure depending on the number of drives that are inserted without any user configuration
  • Dual Disk Redundancy enhances BeyondRAID protection by guarding from multiple drive failures
  • Virtual Hot Spare utilizes all drives at all time - no drives sitting idle waiting for one to fail
  • Drobos are Data Aware, intelligently handling data for added resiliency, performance and management
  • Drive Re-ordering allows Drobo disk packs to be moved to another Drobo and even re-ordered, while still functioning - try that with RAID
  • Data-Aware Tiering: Data-Aware Tiering SANs allow businesses to consolidate storage resources and share that storage across all connected servers and their applications. The reality is that different applications have different workloads
  • iSCSI SANs: iSCSI can be used to connect storage directly to servers using a high-speed connection, or it can be used to create a Storage Area Network (SAN) with to 2, 5 or 10 plus servers
  • Multi-Host Connectivity: Have multiple servers that need storage? No problem. The Drobo 12-bay iSCSI SAN storage for Business connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers
  • Up to 12 Disks of Instant Expansion to 36 TB and Beyond: Grow your storage to meet your data capacity needs with minimal effort. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all twelve drive bays are full
  • Business-Critical: This Drobo can provide a dedicated iSCSI SAN for business-critical applications and server virtualization. As such, it delivers high performance, reliability and security
  • Simplify Your VMware Environment: Storage is an integral part of a successful virtualization strategy. Drobo has been tested for use with VMware to eliminate risk from your storage decision and help accelerate deployment of your virtual server environment
  • Optimizing Business Applications: Like with business applications, Drobo is ideal for building your first server virtualization cluster and had been certified for VMware vSphere and Citrix Xen Server environments
  • Drobo Care Service and Support Program: The Drobo Care service and support program extends your peace of mind beyond the standard warranty terms for 3 years and beyond
  • No Headache Dual-Drive Redundancy: Enable the dual-drive redundancy option to protect against the simultaneous failure of up to two hard drives. It's all done with a single click, without ever losing access to your data. Running out of space? You can click to switch back to single drive redundancy
  • Dual High-Speed iSCSI Interfaces: Unfamiliar with iSCSI. It's an industry- standard, high performance protocol that has become extremely popular with businesses and individuals who demand high data storage throughput, but it can often be complex to manage
  • The Virtues of Smart Volumes: The innovative and timesaving Smart Volume management technology integrated into this Drobo allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of drives rather than a specific physical drive allocation, eliminating the need to manage capacity at the volume level
