Drobo B810i Overview

This B&H Kit combines the Drobo B810i 8-Bay iSCSI SAN Enclosure with eight Seagate 8TB IronWolf 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDDs for a total storage capacity of 64TB.

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
