The entire time I was growing up, every Christmas Day there were arguments at our house about listening to the Royal Christmas message. Some wanted to and other didn’t. But no matter how you feel about the institution of monarchy, it’s pretty amazing that this year Queen Elizabeth is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years on the throne.
We’re helping our EMEA team celebrate the Diamond Jubilee by offering a free GelaSkin for every Drobo, Drobo S, and Drobo FS purchased during the month of June in EMEA. We’re hoping that they’ll dress their Drobo royally maybe in the Union Jack or in our favorite skin, “Keep Calm and Carry On.” There are also great deals on the Drobo B800i and B800fs from UK resellers.
Whether or not you think that the monarchy is a good tradition, we can all agree that there are some bad traditions. A tradition no one should support is trying to back up files onto multiple external hard drives or USB drives. Really, can anyone ever find what they’re looking for? And then one day you take a look and the drive’s failed and you’ve lost your holiday photos and the video of the turkey skidding off the table onto the floor. So start a new tradition with Drobo for storage and backup of your irreplaceable family memories.
Or take a look at our new Drobo + CrashPlan solution for social media backup. You can back up data to a second direct-attached Drobo at an offsite location. CrashPlan also enables “social backup,” where Drobo storage at the site of a friend or family member can be the destination for offsite backups.
P.S. Queen Elizabeth didn’t always look so grandmotherly (not that there’s anything wrong with that …). Here’s a picture of her taken in 1942 by Cecil Beaton back when she was just plain old Princess Elizabeth.
