BeyondRAID Technology

A Drobo model B800fs can hold up to 16 TB of raw storage and beyond. To add capacity, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all drive bays are full. Unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology in Drobo enables you to leverage different drive capacities, allowing for continuous expansion as larger drives become available. With Drobo, expansion is automatic, instantaneous, and access to data is always maintained.

Drobo can protect from single or dual drive failures and has a virtual hot spare capability - ensuring all drives are used as all times.
