Designed for applications like VMware, Microsoft Exchange, and backup for small and medium businesses, the Drobo B1200i offers another fundamental breakthrough with our new Automated Data-Aware Tiering technology. This innovation enables Drobo to automatically optimize performance over a mix of SAS and SSD drives within a single chassis. Performance levels adapt to your workloads in real time (no knobs, no tuning, no waiting), making it truly application-driven, not admin-driven!
The Drobo B1200i also includes:
- 12-bay SAN (iSCSI-attached) capabilities, with dual redundant power and other hardware redundancy.
- Patented BeyondRAID technology for the world’s most automated data protection.
- Drobo’s thin provisioning and thin reclamation capabilities to optimize your capacity and expandability needs.
All of these features, which you’d be hard-pressed to find in any one system at any price – starting at about $10,000. It’s automated, application-driven, and affordable; perfect for small and medium businesses.
