Creative data makes the Drobo line of smart storage solutions. They have launched the Drobo Mini with Solid State Disk (SSD) drive. It can deliver up to 80% more performance compared to a Mini configured with traditional spinning hard drives. The Drobo Mini is the first portable and expandable SSD solution for filmmakers, photographers, and creative professionals.
The Drobo Mini connects via Thunderbolt or USB 3.0. It features four 2.5” SSD drive bays with an mSATA accelerator option. The package is rugged and compact. It is less than 3 pounds of weight, which makes it easily portable.
Another great thing about the Drobo Mini is that it protects data without requiring user intervention to do so. If a drive fails, Drobo Mini automatically repairs itself and returns to a protected state while providing full access to data. It does this without performance being affected. Drobo Mini can do that if one drive fails and in the case of multiple SSD drive failures.
Additional security is provided with battery backup that protects against data loss in the event of a sudden power outage. It ensures that all data in flight is protected until power is restored.
The Drobo Mini with SSD is available now in three capacity bundles of 1TB, 2TB and 4TB and starting at an MSRP of $1,199 through Drobo Store.
