Drobo Mini: Massive Portable RAID Storage on the Go

 |  |  |  |  August 22, 2012

As you’ve probably learned from experience, hard drives tend to be quite finicky if dropped. That’s one of the reasons why it’s best to leave yours home, but Drobo has just come up with a mobile solution that’s supposed to be rugged and give you tons of storage.

The beauty of the Drobo Mini is that it’s packed with durable 2.5″ drives, up to four of them. It’s actually a mini RAID array, the size of a deli sandwich. It’s built out of metal and carbon fiber, is soft to the touch, and will offer you a total capacity of up to 3TB, and can be configured with single or dual drive redundancy, and drives are hot-swappable. It’s compatible with both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0, and works with Mac OS X and Windows systems.
