So work is finally going to let me get a Drobo FS and five 1TB (1000GB) hard drives. Not only do I think it will be a great dummy-proof RAID NAS, but it is something I’ve always wanted. The Drobo will let me backup the network files, and thanks to the easy to understand LED’s on the drive, anyone can tell if there is something wrong, or when the device needs bigger drives.
I wish I could get a Drobo for myself, but I don’t really need one for my own stuff with online file storage solutions like Dropbox meeting my needs.
I haven’t ordered the Drobo yet, but by middle of March, I’ll have it and set it up for work. If anyone has any tips, tricks or advice, I’m interested.
For those that don’t know what a Drobo is…
