Overview

The Drobo B810i disrupts IT economics by delivering advanced iSCSI SAN storage capabilities reserved for expensive enterprise solutions. It is optimized for small and medium-sized businesses that don’t have dedicated IT support and it is used to simplify and consolidate both physical and virtual storage in a single array with “on-demand” ability to scale both capacity and performance. With Data-Aware Tiering, the B810i’s ability to automatically tier frequently used transactional data from stored data that’s seldom used enables businesses to consolidate storage resources, and share that storage across all connected clients and their applications. The B810i model allows for a more effective work collaboration, the storage of creative workflows, and a trustworthy, easy-to-use backup system.

Leave Your Limitations Behind… Go BeyondRAID
Built on our award-winning BeyondRAID technology, the Drobo B810i protects your data without any intervention – even in the event of multiple drive failures. You can even switch from single to dual disk redundancy with a single click, ensuring enterprise-level dual parity data protection when required. Drobo’s with BeyondRAID are also self-healing and have virtual hot-spares. If a drive happens to fail, Drobo will automatically re-layout the data to return to a protected state without disruption.

Drobo takes the up front guess work out of determining the amount of capacity you require. Buy the capacity you need today, and when you need more storage, simply replace your smallest drive with a larger one and immediately use that capacity in seconds. You can even mix and match drive brands, capacities and speeds.

To further enhance your experience, every Drobo comes with Smart Volume technology. Smart Volumes are thinly provisioned volumes that automatically utilize capacity as needed from a common pool of storage. Additionally, as data is deleted, free capacity is returned to that common pool, immediately increasing the available capacity.

BeyondRAID along with Smart Volumes deliver next-generation storage technology by bringing together enhanced data protection, reliability, expandability, and ease-of-use.

Pain Free Expansion
Expanding your storage capacity with a Drobo couldn’t be easier. There’s no long, risky process to add capacity to a Drobo – no need to go through the time consuming and complex administration of destroying your RAID sets and recreating with larger drives; and then finally restoring from your backup. When it’s time to add storage capacity to a Drobo, simply insert additional disk drives or replace the smallest disks with larger ones. The unique, carrier-less drive-bay design results in efficient and pain free scalability that won’t leave you running out of space when you need it most.

If you’re running low on space, the lights on the front of the Drobo B810i tell you exactly what to do. The innovative, user-friendly industrial design allows you to add or hot-swap larger capacity drives, without tools, on the fly, for storage expansion with zero downtime. Expand your capacity without missing a beat while safely storing, sharing and backing up all your data with ease and peace of mind. It’s that simple!

Automated Data-Aware Tiering
The Drobo B810i moves beyond the days of manually tuning an array for applications that have different storage requirements. Automated Data-Aware Tiering leverages high-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) paired with high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) to deliver application-optimized storage that requires no manual tuning.

Data-Aware Tiering automatically and seamlessly migrates the most frequently accessed data to the faster SSD drives and the less accessed data to the high capacity hard disk drives. As data access patterns change, the data is automatically relocated to maximize performance while still benefiting from the large capacity drives.
