Connected Data launches Drobo Mini 8 TB rugged portable flash array
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.
