I have been using an original Drobo to store my important data and backups since the device launched and I will never go back to normal external hard drives. Data Robotics has announced a new DroboPro device that takes what I love about the original Drobo and adds more.
DroboPro is a business class storage array that self manages and is intended to be simple and robust. The enclosure has spots for eight hard drives compared to the four spot for the normal Drobo device. Like the normal Drobo, the DroboPro allows mixing and matching of HDD brands and capacities.
The storage device supports RAID 5 and RAID 6 with no need to reformat disks or migrate data. Interface options include iSCSI, FireWire 800 and USB 2.0. The best part about the DroboPro is that when more storage is needed you simply pop in a disk with more capacity and the data rebuilds itself and you are ready to go.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
