The new Drobo Mini 8 TB bundle is the world’s highest capacity portable storage array and retails for $999 USD.

Connected Data announced yesterday a new product that joins the award-winning Drobo family of smart storage solutions. According to the official press release, the Drobo Mini 8 TB bundle "provides customers with a massive amount of storage space in a small, rugged form factor." This product doubles the maximum amount of storage space offered by the latest Drobo device they launched, the Drobo Mini with SSD drives.

The Drobo Mini 8 TB bundle has four hot-swappable 2.5-inch drive bays which come loaded with 2 TB Samsung Spinpoint M9T hard drives. The company's proprietary BeyondRAID technology allows the Drobo Mini 8 TB bundle to handle the failure of one or two simultaneous drive failures. This storage device has both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt connectivity and everything comes inside "a sleek-looking package that weighs just three pounds and is small enough to easily fit into any travel bag."

The Drobo Mini 8 TB bundle can be already purchased from www.drobostore.com and partners, starting at an MSRP of $999 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
