About Drobo B800fs

Drobo delivers "big storage in a small box" to create the best storage experience ever for small and medium sized businesses and departments at larger enterprises. Built on proven and award-winning BeyondRAID technology, the Drobo model B800fs allows the sharing of files with all computers on the network and keep that vital business data protected with offsite replication.

Drobo model B800fs connects seamlessly to your existing Ethernet network and supports both Windows and Mac computers. Drobo Apps give you the freedom to customize your Drobo to meet your own unique set of requirements.

Drobo B800fs Features

  • Design: Drobo model B800fs is designed to be rack mounted, but it is also compact and quiet, making it ideal for workgroup environments that need storage located in an office or on a desk. Even the faceplate is magnetic, with the manual is on the back
  • 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 - check out the interactive Capacity Calculator
  • 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
  • Drobo Sync: Drobo Sync is the intelligent and easy-to-use replication tool built into the Drobo model B800fs. It is designed to provide offsite protection to all data hosted on a Drobo, guarding against major disasters like fire, flood and theft
  • Drobo Apps: Drobo Apps range from media servers to web server to network utilities. What you can do with Drobo Apps is endless
  • Drobo Dashboard Management: Drobo Dashboard is the single tool to centrally manage all of your Drobos. Drobo Dashboard gives you status as if all of your Drobos were right in front of you by providing you the same status lights and capacity gauge that are on the front panel

Drobo B800fs Reviews

Reviewed by 1 customers


Happy with it


from Menlo Park, CA  -  Power user

It works well, even with the consumer grade HDD. It's extremely easy to set up, adding new disks and removing them. I can't tell yet how it will perform when a real disk problem occurs.

Questions about this item:

mel l  I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
CHRISTOPHE J  - Extremely easy to configure through the Drobo dashboard. - Alert to your Drobo dashboard or by sending email (you will need to indicate a SMTP server). - So easy to add additional drives. No need to turn off the unit. - Can use cheap hard drives: Even though Drobo recommends to use "Enterprise" class drives, I've been using 3TB "consumer" grade Seagate drives without any problem. - Reliable: I also bought a 5-bay Drobo and both units have been running for a couple of months without any problem. - Ethernet connectivity. I wanted a NAS. I hope this helps.
