Small/Medium Business (SMB)Drobo Storage Solutions For Businesses and Professionals
Can you put a price on your digital assets?
The data storage needs of small businesses today are nearly identical to the needs of large enterprises just a few years ago. Small businesses need storage solutions that can protect office documents, customer data and other files against a hard drive failure and can be encrypted to protect against loss or theft. Drobo protects against hard drive failure without ever compromising your access to data and is compatible with Windows encryption and OS X Disk Utility ‘s virtual disk encryption.
Small business budgets demand technology solutions that have low up-front costs and provide excellent value over time. By both standards, Drobo is one of the most affordable protected storage solutions available.
- Low up-front cost: Purchase Drobo without drives or bundled with the amount of storage you need now.
- Bring your own drives: Drobo products allow you to mix and match drive capacities, spindle speeds and manufacturers meaning that you can re-use drives in your inventory.
- Pay as you grow: Drobo products instantly expand, which means you won’t have to over provision now to accommodate future storage needs.
