Creators of digital media, both professional and amateur, have voracious storage requirements. They require high-performance storage for photo and video editing with programs like Aperture, iPhoto, Photoshop and Lightroom, Final Cut Pro and iMovie. Additionally, creators need secure storage to back up and protect their work. Digital-media creators are not Information Technology (IT) experts, and selecting storage systems is not their primary focus.
I recently wrote about Drobo RAID storage arrays. They provide expandable storage with redundancy for the safekeeping of your data. The units that I reviewed are all available with instant savings from B&H until the end of June, 2010. I've just been made aware that there is an 8-bay unit that comes with free hard drives.
There was a time when only very large corporations needed RAID storage. RAID storage is still used by large corporations, but today you’ll also find small businesses and individual users taking advantage of its features. Data Robotics’ Drobo storage arrays make affordable entry points to failsafe storage, and they’re made all the more affordable with the instant savings you can get from B&H until the end of June.
Though hardware is replaceable, the same can't always be said for the data on a hard drive. That's why a robust data storage system attached to your network can make the difference between disaster and recovery. Whether you run a small business or want to protect your family's digital memories, the Drobo series of hard-drive arrays from Data Robotics goes a long way to giving you peace of mind.
I hate backing up. I do it, but I hate it. If you’re not running back ups, you’re courting heartache. My cautionary tale: A few years back, my brother and I were editing our first indie feature. Our data got corrupted. Nothing was backed up. We lost 3 months of post-production -- the entire film. Starting from scratch nearly killed us. Don’t let it happen to you.
