Drobo B810i Overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the Drobo B810i 8-Bay iSCSI SAN Enclosure with eight WD 4TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDDs for a total storage capacity of 32TB.

  • Drobo B810i 8-Bay iSCSI SAN Enclosure

    Designed for small businesses to provide reliable and high performance storage servers for processes such as file services, data protection, email, and server virtualization, the B810i 8-Bay iSCSI SAN Enclosure from Drobo integrates seamlessly into your TCP/IP network infrastructure and utilizes the industry-standard iSCSI protocol to provide simple and consolidated storage for your servers. It is equipped with three Gigabit Ethernet ports, two of which provide data and one of which is for management.

    The Drobo B810i has eight 3.5" drive bays which are able to support up to eight SATA hard drives or SSDs, with no tools being required for installing 2.5" SSD carriers. As SSDs are able to operate with faster data transfer speeds, Drobo's hybrid storage option and Data Aware Tiering allow the most frequently accessed data to be stored on the SSDs, while less accessed data is stored on the hard drives. The result is fast redundant storage with an efficient read cache. The drive bays in the B810i also are also compatible with 4KN media.

    The Drobo B810i has also been built on BeyondRAID technology. If there are any empty drive bays, BeyondRAID allows additional drives to be inserted into the array, where they would be automatically configured. If all drive bays are occupied, simply replace the smallest capacity drive with a larger one and BeyondRAID will handle the rest. BeyondRAID is also what allows drives of varying capacities to work in the same unit, which helps enable future expansion as larger drives become available.

    Built with a desktop form factor with a 3 RU / 19" rackmount kit available separately and controlled using Drobo's Dashboard software, the B810i is powered using an internal 100/240 VAC power supply that operates at 1.8/0.75A and 50/60 Hz. It is compatible with Windows NTFS, Mac HFS+, and WMware VMFS file systems. Included are 1 x 6.0' power cord, 3 x 6.0' Ethernet cables, and international (Dutch, French, & Japanese) LED labels for the front panel. The Drobo B810i is protected by a limited 1-year warranty.

    General Features

    BeyondRAID Technology
    A Drobo B810i iSCSI array can hold up to eight SATA hard drives of any capacity. To expand the storage capacity of an array, BeyondRAID enables additional disk drives to be inserted into empty drive bays. These new drives are automatically and transparently configured for use in the array without user intervention. However, if all drive bays are occupied, simply replace the smallest capacity drive with a higher capacity one and BeyondRAID will do the rest.

    Unlike traditional RAID arrays, the BeyondRAID technology in Drobo enables different drive capacities to work in the same unit. This enables future expansion as larger SATA drives become available. With Drobo, access to data is always maintained while it protects against simultaneous drive failures
    Smart Volumes and Thin Provisioning
    Create new volumes up to 64TB in seconds and manage them over time with ease. Drobo's Smart Volume management technology with Thin Provisioning integrated into the B810i allows volumes to pull storage from the common pool of disks rather than a specific physical disk allocation. The labor of resizing and migrating volumes is replaced with the simplicity of intelligent engineering. The Drobo B810i supports 255 Smart Volumes of up to 64TB each
    Hybrid Storage and Tiering
    The Drobo B810n moves beyond manually tuning an array for applications that have different storage requirements. Its ability to automatically tier frequently used transactional data from stored data that's seldom used enables businesses to consolidate storage resources and share that storage across all connected clients and their applications.

    When using the hybrid storage option, Drobo's Data Aware Tiering leverages high-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) for bulk storage and high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for both read and write acceleration. The Drobo B810i can use the same SSDs to deliver both a Data Aware Transactional Tier and Hot Data cache at the same time. The result is fast redundant storage with a fast read cache for an application-optimized solution that requires no manual tuning
    Optimizing Business Applications
    Drobo is well suited for building your first scalable backup server or server virtualization cluster. Drobo technology is often used with many well-known backup products including Veem Backup, VMware vSphere, Acronis, and Symantec Backup Exec 15
    Rackmount Ready, Desktop Quiet
    The Drobo B810i can be deployed in a server room for IT use or on a desktop for workgroup sharing of storage, thanks to its compact design and quiet operation. Dual smart fans automatically manage their speeds to optimize cooling and minimize operating noise. The Drobo B810i rackmount is sold separately
    Drobo Dashboard
    Drobo Dashboard is an easy-to-use administration tool to centrally manage all your Drobos. It displays the status of all of your Drobos as if they were right in front of you.

    In fact, it provides the same status lights and storage capacity usage gauge that are on the front panel of each of your Drobos. So wherever you are, you can check the health of all your disk drives and know that Drobo has your back, keeping all your data safe. Plus the dashboard handles all administration tasks simply and easily without you needing to become a storage expert. This is an easy way to configure and manage business-class storage
    DroboCare
    Drobo products are engineered to the highest standards, but occasionally something goes wrong. DroboCare is simple, powerful protection for your Drobo storage. The DroboCare support program extends your peace of mind beyond the standard warranty term and the phone support included with your Drobo purchase. DroboCare gives you more, even during your standard warranty period

    General Features

    Fill Your NAS with WD Red
    Built for 1 to 8-bay NAS systems, WD Red lets users store their data in one unit
    NASware 3.0 Technology
    Built into every WD Red hard drive, NASware 3.0's technology helps improves your system's storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability
    Built for NAS Compatibility
    Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS, but WD Red drives with NASware are. WD's technology helps takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. WD Red is for small NAS systems and WD's algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments
    Desktop Drives vs. WD Red
    Desktop hard drives are not designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose a drive with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
  • Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your NAS system, improved performance is not guaranteed
  • Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one and desktop drives aren't typically tested in those conditions. WD Red is
  • Error Recovery Controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue
  • Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems
  • WD Red for Home
    Stream, backup, share, and organize your digital content at home with a NAS and WD Red drives designed to share content to the devices in your home. Red NASware helps increase your drives' compatibility with your devices, TV, stereo, and more
    WD Red for Small Business
    WD Red is a good hard drive choice for 1 to 8 bay systems. NASware 3.0 allows for integration with your existing network so WD Red can share and backup files at the speed of your business. For larger businesses with up to 16 bays, use WD Red Pro
    3D Active Balance Plus
    This helps ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control helps reduce the degradation of your drive over time
    Reliability
    Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red drive with NASware 3.0 is designed for 24x7 environments
    Cooler Operations
    By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cooler. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS
