The Fastest Drobo Yet With Thunderbolt™ 3 Speed
Meet the bigger, better, and bolder Drobo 8D. Capable of supporting 16 volumes of up to 128TB, with a total storage pool of 256TB, 8D is designed to meet the need for data-intensive workflows. With lightning speed ThunderboltTM 3, the Drobo 8D is the fastest direct attached Drobo yet. The 8D comes equipped with a Drobo Accelerator Bay, and is the only Drobo with the new Intelligent Volume Management technology.
Time Machine and Drobo: A Perfect Pairing
Apple’s Time Machine was designed to make backing up your files simple and painless. Pairing Time Machine with Drobo improves your data protection by ensuring your data is safe in the event of hard drive failure
Power of ThunderboltTM 3
Drobo 8D storage array offers a lightning fast ThunderboltTM 3 connection (macOS only) that is both fast and backwards compatible. This optimizes your performance when transferring large volumes of data. With the dual ports, the Drobo 8D connects up to six Thunderbolt devices or five devices and a monitor at the end of the chain. Supports one 5K or two 4K displays (with a Thunderbolt dock).
Power Protecting Your Critical Data
In addition to drive failure protection, Drobo also protects against potential data loss during a power outage. In every Drobo we include battery backup technology to protect data in memory or cache. When power spontaneously goes away, Drobo moves any in-flight data to onboard flash in your Drobo, so it will be protected and moved to your disk drives once power is restored. This ensures your important information is safe and sound. Even better, your battery recharges itself and is designed to last for the life of your Drobo.
