This B&H Kit combines the Drobo B810n 8-Bay NAS Enclosure with eight Seagate 4TB IronWolf 5900 rpm SATA III 3.5" internal NAS hard drives, for a total storage capacity of 32TB.
Drobo B810n 8-Bay NAS Enclosure
Enhanced read and write features found on the B810n 8-Bay NAS Enclosure from Drobo provide rapid data transfers to and from multiple users. The data tiering feature nearly eliminates the delay between multiple read and write processes when used with solid state drives, while the hot data cache feature prefetches data during the read process to predict what data will be read next to enhance read speeds. Combine the enhanced data transfer rates with dual Ethernet failover ports and you have a comprehensive, network-attached storage solution. When used in concert, the bonded Gigabit Ethernet ports provide nearly double the performance that would be achieved with a single port, and they can also be used separately to connect the Drobo to two different networks.
With the Drobo B810n, you can share files across platforms, as it supports computers running Mac, including macOS High Sierra, as well as Windows and Linux. You can even use the Drobo DR feature to create offsite data backups to ensure your data is safe in the event of system failure, theft, natural disaster, etc. For added peace of mind, Drobo has included a built-in battery designed to power the internal RAM, keeping directory structures safe until the power returns.
Once the Drobo B810n is set up, you can choose from a large catolog of DroboApps. These apps help to increase the functionality of this NAS storage device with features such as cloud backup services, streaming music and video apps, and much more.

Hybrid Storage & Tiering
When using the hybrid storage option, Drobo's Data Aware Tiering leverages high-capacity hard drives (HDDs) for bulk storage and high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) for transfer acceleration. The result is fast redundant storage with a fast read cache for an application-optimized solution that requires no manual tuning.
