This B&H Kit includes the Drobo B1200i 12-Bay NAS Storage Array with twelve 4TB 3.5" HDDs. By combining the Drobo B1200i Storage Array with twelve 4TB hard drives you can take advantage of 48TB of storage space sufficient for storing a large amount of data. This data can then be distributed throughout your network via the integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports. Take advantage of BeyondRAID technology allowing you to replace drives without the need to power down or restart the array. Once configured, you can utilize the Drobo Dashboard to monitor the status of the array as well as make necessary changes to the system via the integrated administrative options.

  • Drobo B1200i 12-Bay NAS Storage Array

    The B1200i 12-Bay NAS Storage Array from Drobo features 12 drive bays capable of holding 3.5" hard disk drives and solid state drives making this a versatile hard drive enclosure. Aside from 12 drive bays, this Drobo storage array comes complete with three Gigabit Ethernet ports designated for iSCSI use and one Gigabit Ethernet port for system management. Managing and configuring your array has also been simplified through the use of Drobo's own BeyondRAID technology allowing you to replace drives without the need to power down or restart the array.

    This Drobo Storage Array supports a variety of operating systems including Mac OS X Server, Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, VMware vSphere 4.1.x and Citrix XenServer 5.6 allowing you to integrate this array into virtually any system configuration. Along with versatile OS compatibility you benefit from enhanced file system compatibility with Windows NTFS and FAT32, Mac OS X HFS+, Linux ext3, VMware vSphere VMFS, and Citrix XenServer LVM.

    Once configured, you can take advantage of Drobo Dashboard enabling you to monitor multiple Drobo devices via the intuitive dashboard showing each Drobo as if you were looking at it in person. See the status lights of each Drobo and utilize the integrated administrative options to control each unit individually.

    BeyondRAID Technology
    The Drobo B1200i iSCSI array can hold up to 48TB of raw storage. To add capacity, insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all drive bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID, the BeyondRAID technology in Drobo enables you to leverage different drive capacities, allowing for continuous expansion as larger drives become available. With Drobo, expansion is automatic and instantaneous and access to data is always maintained, while protecting you from two simultaneous drive failures.
    Automated Data-Aware Tiering
    Automated Data-Aware Tiering allows businesses to consolidate storage resources and share that storage across all connected servers and their applications. Avoid manually tuning an array for applications that have different storage requirements. Automated Data-Aware Tiering leverages high-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) paired with high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) to deliver application-optimized storage that requires no manual tuning.
    Smart Volumes & Thin Provisioning
    Create new volumes up to 16TB in seconds and manage them over time with ease. Smart Volumes management technology with Thin Provisioning integrated into the Drobo B1200i allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of disks rather than a specific physical disk allocation.
    Optimizing Business Applications
    Drobo is ideal for building a server virtualization cluster, highly available email server, or scalable backup server. Drobo technology has been certified for VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Symantec Backup Exec, and Veeam Backup environments.
    Designed for IT Environments
    The B1200i comes equipped with serviceable modular components including a removable controller card; dual redundant, hot-swappable power supplies; and a hot-swappable cooling fan unit. You can source field replaceable units in advance in case of a single hardware component failure, to ensure increased uptimes delivering a higher level of availability.
    Drobo Dashboard
    Manage multiple Drobo devices with the Drobo Dashboard displaying the status of all of your Drobos. See the status lights and capacity gauges as if you were looking at the front panel of each Drobo device. All administration tasks are a single click away and you also benefit from a built-in data protection tool called Drobo Copy to easily copy data to and from your Drobo.

  • 12 x WD 4 TB WD RE SAS 3.5" OEM Hard Drive

    The 4 TB WD RE SAS 3.5" OEM Hard Drive from WD is a powerful combination of enterprise class performance and high capacity required for superior performance computing and business critical environments. The hard drive delivers transfer rates of up to 6 Gbps, sustained sequential data rates of up to 182 MBps and high random I/O rates. With a field-tested 1.4 million hours MTBF, it delivers the highest level of reliability for 24x7 operation in up to 100% duty cycle applications.

    The WD RE SAS Hard Drive's NoTouch ramp load technology ensures that the recording head never touches the disk media. This ensures significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as enhanced drive protection in transit. The hard drive features a head positioning system with two actuators which improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The enhanced RAFF technology monitors the drive and corrects both linear and rotational vibration in real-time. It thus provides optimum performance even in high vibration environments.

    The WD RE SAS Hard Drive's Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER) feature prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes. An ultra fast 6 Gbps SAS interface enables easy integration into SAS storage subsystems. It also delivers twice the interface speed than traditional 3 Gbps SAS nearline hard drives.

    The hard drive is ideal for high capacity data center storage, demanding high performance computing and business critical environments, Storage Area Networks (SAN), Network Attached Storage (NAS), Direct Attach Storage (DAS), networked surveillance systems and cloud storage.

    High Performance for Business Critical Applications
    The WD RE SAS Hard Drive delivers transfer rates of up to 6 Gbps, sustained sequential data rates of up to 182 MBps and high random I/O rates.
    Designed for Quality and Reliability
    The hard drive, with a field-tested 1.4 million hours MTBF, delivers the highest level of reliability. It delivers an advanced level of reliability for 24x7 operation in up to 100% duty cycle applications.
    Dual Port, Full Duplex Connectivity
    The WD RE SAS Hard Drive offers high reliability, performance and data availability by eliminating single points of failure. It is designed for leading business critical enterprise topologies.
    NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
    The recording head never touches the disk media. This ensures significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
    Dual Stage Actuator Technology
    The hard drive features a head positioning system with two actuators which improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.
    RAFF Technology
    The enhanced RAFF technology monitors the drive and corrects both linear and rotational vibration in real-time. It thus provides optimum performance even in high vibration environments.
    RAID-Specific Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER)
    This feature prevents drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error recovery processes common to desktop drives.
    Ultra Compatible
    An ultra fast 6 Gbps SAS interface enables easy integration into SAS storage subsystems. It also delivers twice the interface speed than traditional 3 Gbps SAS nearline hard drives.
    Applications
    The WD RE SAS Hard Drive is ideal for high capacity data center storage, demanding high performance computing and business critical environments, Storage Area Networks (SAN), Network Attached Storage (NAS), Direct Attach Storage (DAS), networked surveillance systems and cloud storage.
