If you want a serious (and rather sexy) backup solution that doesn’t take up too much desk-space, Drobo might have just the solution for you.
Introducing the Drobo Mini 8TB, housing 4x Samsung 2TB SSD drives in hot-swappable bays, this is a RAID backup solution that will secure your data even in the unlikely event of one (or even two) of your four drives failing.
Drobo claim that using the SSD drives (as opposed to traditional spinning drive version that is available) offers as much as 80% better performance.
Weighing in at around 1.35Kg, the Drobo Mini is clearly aimed at demanding creative professionals from photographers to filmmakers. You have a choice to two connections with the Drobo Mini; USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt.
The Drobo Mini 8TB will cost £549 (before VAT) in the UK and $999 in the US. You can find out more via the official Drobo Press Release.
