As high-resolution photos and 4K videos have become more commonplace, the amount of storage needed for such media has likewise increased. With the overall capacity of mobile devices being split between apps, music, photos, videos, documents, and more, it is not as viable as it once was to store all your media on your iOS device. Additionally, cloud backup services can also become expensive over time. To this end, Drobo has announced its DroboPix app, which uploads and organizes mobile photos and videos and helps simplify managing important data.
Part of the myDrobo suite of software applications, DroboPix is compatible with the Drobo 5N and B810n units, affording users the ability to automatically upload and organize photos and videos within their local Wi-Fi network. To use DroboPix, one needs to merely walk into a location where the app recognizes the network, which is verified by the geolocation, and new photos and videos are uploaded automatically. The geolocation and verification, and usage of the user’s Wi-Fi, adds two layers of security, while the data transfers over Wi-Fi help to conserve battery power and cellular data usage.
To access uploaded content, users can access their Drobo using NAS shares, a web browser, or directly from their mobile device using DroboAccess, another app that is available on the myDrobo platform. DroboPix is compatible with iOS devices, and when paired with the five bays of the Drobo 5N or eight bays of the B810n, users will have access to large amounts of storage that will help them to maintain the capacity of their iPhone or iPad in a more user-friendly fashion.
