With more capacity, speed, connectivity options, and automated data backup, the DroboPro FS continues to deliver the best file sharing experience ever.

The DroboPro FS is perfect for any small office, home office, or a media rich connected home needing a simple, safe device for sharing and backing up files over the network .

Like all Drobo storage products, DroboPro FS provides redundant data protection without the complexities of RAID. Just plug in your DroboPro FS and data protection is all set up with no configuration required. We call this BeyondRAID™ technology. You'll call it peace of mind.

Simple Data Backup

Use the integrated Drobo Sync feature to quickly and easily backup your data to another DroboPro FS on your network or via your VPN. Simple to configure and schedule, Drobo Sync provides the power to keep your important data safe and secure. Learn more about Drobo Sync.

Network Redundancy Built In and Automatic

The DroboPro FS has two Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be configured to fail over if one link fails. You can also easily setup the ports to provide two separate network links to your storage: one for your data and the other for Drobo Sync data transfers, for example.

Supports the Computer of Your Choice

Connect to your DroboPro FS using any Windows, Mac, or UNIX/Linux computer ². Whatever system you have, it's likely you'll be able to connect to it over your network quickly and easily.

Easy Expansion to 16TB and Beyond

DroboPro FS holds up to eight drives allowing you to effortlessly grow your storage to meet your data capacity needs. To add more space, simply insert a new hard drive or replace your smallest drive with a larger one, even when all drive bays are full.

And unlike traditional RAID systems, the BeyondRAID technology in DroboPro FS enables you to mix and match drive capacities, brands and speeds. This unprecedented flexibility allows for continuous expansion as available hard drive capacities increase.

With DroboPro FS, expansion is automatic, instantaneous and access to data is always maintained.

Protection from up to Two Drive Failures

Enable the dual-drive redundancy option to protect your data from failure of up to two hard drives. It's all done with a single-click and you never lose access to your data. Running out of space? No problem. Switch back to single-drive redundancy at any time. Unlike moving between traditional RAID levels, there's no need to reformat or migrate data off of the DroboPro FS — potentially saving you hours or days of downtime.

Self-Healing Technology

With the self-healing "virtual hot spare" technology incorporated into DroboPro FS, your data is safer than ever. If a drive fails, DroboPro FS keeps your data in the safest state possible by automatically moving your data to the available space on the remaining healthy drives returning to the highest level of drive failure protection possible.

Seamless Integration with Apple Time Machine

The DroboPro FS enables network backup for Mac users at home, home office or small offices. The DroboPro FS delivers the most seamless support for Apple Time Machine of any network storage system on the market today.
