The short list for the Storage Awards is out on www.storage-awards.com/ and we’re proud to announce that Drobo has been shortlisted in five categories. If you love your Drobo, vote for us (click the Vote Now link at the top left) – we think we have a pretty good chance! The Drobo B1200i is without question the “One to watch,” “Value for Money,” the “Disk-based product of the year – SME,” and the “Flash/SSD product of the year.” And we are the company “One to watch.”
And how can we mention the B1200i without also noting that a firmware release with SSD support that enables Automated Data-Aware Tiering is coming soon, very soon. Excitement is building here and the performance acceleration is as advertised: automatic, immediate, application independent (performance is increased for any application workload), and affordable.
As few as 3 industry-standard SSDs are required to gain the performance acceleration benefits and dual-disk redundancy. We include tiering features in the price of a standard system, while others offer it as a costly option. Frankly, we’re the most affordable storage solution with tiering and performance acceleration benefits. so vote for Drobo!
