New DroboPro FS NAS
Data Robotics announced the new DroboPro FS this week. The DroboPro FS has eight drive bays (as opposed to the five drive bays that are in the current Drobo FS) and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The eight drive bays make it possible to have as much as 16TB of available storage (depending on how you configure the device).
The dual Gigabit Ethernet ports can be configured to fail over if one link fails. They can also be set up to use one port for data access on the local area network and the other port to sync backups to another DroboPro FS. This capability will be made available through the Drobo Sync application, which is a free update slated to arrive at the end of the month to the included Drobo Dashboard software.
According to Data Robotics site, the DroboPro FS has a leadtime of 6 to 8 weeks.
