Today the Drobo B1200i got an “auto-magic” boost with SSDs and our innovative Automated Data-Aware Tiering functionality on our flagship Drobo B1200i, bringing easy performance acceleration and affordable use of SSDs to small and medium business customers for the first time. The new B1200i system, sporting 18TB of traditional hard disk storage and 600GB of solid state drive storage, meets the capacity, data protection, and accelerated performance needs of small businesses. All in an easy, automated, and affordable package for under $18,000.
- “It’s the happy meal of storage,” cited one prominent analyst, an obvious foodie.
- “No, it’s the bento box of storage,” cried another. “It’s got some of everything.”
- “Tastes great, less costly,” echoed a third.
On a more serious (and totally truthful) note, we already have hundreds of existing B1200i customers, and the ability to add a few SSDs to their system to jack up performance across their applications is more than appealing. Here are a few real customer comments on the B1200i.
Take a look at today’s press release to find the 4 amazing things about how Drobo’s approach is game-changing compared to everyone else, including Dell EqualLogic and Compellent, HP 3PAR and LeftHand, and EMC VNX and whatever big, expensive stuff they sell.
