Drobo B1200i 24TB SAN Storage Hard Drive Array 4x Gigabit Ethernet Ports 3U Rackmount Mac & Windows Compatible -

The Drobo 24 TB B1200i SAN Storage Enclosure (12x 2 TB SAS Hard Drives) is a powerful, 12-bay, easy-to-use means of doing so. This Drobo includes twelve enterprise-class 2 TB hard disk drives that have the blisteringly SAS 6 Gbps interface and that offer a total capacity of 24 TB. Even with these drives, the enclosure's capacity can be constantly expanded because its twelve drive bays can hold SATA I or II, SAS, or SSD drives of up to 4 TB piece.
Built on the proven BeyondRAID technology, this Drobo delivers advanced capabilities such as thin provisioning and data-aware tiering, usually reserved for more expensive enterprise solutions. Thin provisioning allows you to expand capacity by switching out one drive with another. Data-aware tiering is a technology that optimizes the use of Drobo SAN storage, depending on the kind of database needs that you have. It also allows you to use SAS, SATA, Solid State drives all in the same enclosure.
For business, this Drobo is designed to provide reliable and high performance storage to servers running business-critical applications such as back up, e-mail and server virtualization. Drobo B1200i connects seamlessly to your existing TCP/IP network and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple, consolidated storage for your servers. This particular Drobo includes three Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting to your network and one additional Gigabit port for out-of-band management.

Support and Cushioning:

  • Drobo Care Service and Support Program: The Drobo Care service and support program extends your peace of mind beyond the standard warranty terms for 3 years and beyond


  • Mixed Drive Utilization allows you to insert any drive, of any size, or any type and Drobo will optimally use it


  • Thin Provisioning as a fundamental capability allows for infinite capacity expansion by just replacing a drive with a larger one
  • Dual Disk Redundancy enhances BeyondRAID protection by guarding from multiple drive failures
  • Virtual Hot Spare utilizes all drives at all time - no drives sitting idle waiting for one to fail
  • Automatic Protection Levels ensures the best algorithm is used to protect from drive failure depending on the number of drives that are inserted without any user configuration
  • Drobos are Data Aware, intelligently handling data for added resiliency, performance and management
  • Drive Re-ordering allows Drobo disk packs to be moved to another Drobo and even re-ordered, while still functioning - try that with RAID
  • Instant Expansion occurs when a new, or larger, drive is inserted without any disruption in service
  • Up to 12 Disks of Instant Expansion to 36 TB and Beyond: Grow your storage to meet your data capacity needs with minimal effort. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all twelve drive bays are full
