Drobo Mini: Adroit external data storage system

Key to all data is deciding whether your data is worth keeping. This post is for all who wish to save data at all costs, effectively and with as little inconvenience as possible.

Ok, so in something the size of a deli sandwich, the Drobo Mini, loaded with three 2.5inch (63.5 mm) one terabyte hard drives and weighing in at about 3 pounds (1.3 kgs), either sits neatly on your desk and or robust enough to withstand baggage handling in your travel bag.

Among the many technical features - are  hot-swappable drive bays  - no carriers or screws needed to insert drives  - an innovative design allowing drives to click in and out like a ballpoint pen, notwithstanding that it’s the world's first high-performance and protected portable storage system.

Here to give you a more thorough explanation of how you can integrate the Drobo mini into your working or living environment is, the following video review courtesy of George Crump, lead analyst from Storage Switzerland:

The really significant feature of this device is how so little, indeed, if any, attention, is needed during it's operation. The device is in fact a slave robot, continuously updating your data, and depending on how you set it up  automatically shuffles data between it's loaded drives.

The Drobo mini is the "fastest portable storage array—with cutting-edge Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity and can be loaded with solid state drives (SSDs)."
