Storage technology has changed dramatically since it inception back in the day. People would buy extra internal hard drives, create stand-alone servers, or build a whole computer just for backup data. There was just not a very convenient or cheap way to store any extra information you needed. Nowadays, many people can buy external hard drives, NAS, SAN, and other drive bay systems. And with the addition of RAID technology; transfer rates and efficiency have been ever increasing.
Today I have the pleasure of reviewing the Drobo DRO4D-D 4 Bay drive system. Earlier we saw the Drobo B800i was an amazing product for business that need to store critical information with feasible accessibility. It was a bit more on the expensive side but it was more catered for high-end business that could afford it. This DRO4D-D 4 Bay drive system delivers the same great technology but with much more affordable price. Its costs around 300 dollars and can store up to 12 TB of information (4 Bays x 3TB each). Let’s see how their 4-Bay system performs since it will be catered to the average consumer.
