Product Description

Drobo DR-B810N-5A31 64TB (8 x 8TB WD RED) 8 Bay Desktop NAS

The World's First 64TB NAS With Data-Aware Tiering

The B810n is a fusion of large and fast. It can grow up to 64TB presenting itself as a single large pool of storage. If you add two SSDs, it accelerates access to commonly used "hot" data. Ideal for a network of up to 100 users, the Drobo810 can store and share files. Use it as your primary storage for important files and documents OR as a place to backup files, projects, or even complete computers on the network.

 

The Problem B810n Solves

All other NAS systems have this problem: when multiple users are accessing it overall performance goes down. This is because simultaneous user requests induce the hard drives recording mechanism to move around the disk. The drive spends more time looking for data blocks than it does reading or writing data for users.

 

SSD Accelerated Performance

The B810n was designed to provide all users uniform performance. Add two SSDs and you can accelerate performance for all simultaneous users. New technology uses two techniques to accelerate access to your data:

  • Data Tiering: as transactional data (small pieces of data) is read or written it is placed in SSD storage. Subsequent reads or writes to these blocks are almost instantaneous as there is no delay induced by a hard drive's magnetic head having to move into position. Active, or "hot" data, is stored in an SSD tier of storage. As it cools, i.e. access decreases, the B810n will move the data to the hard drive tier.
  • Hot Data Cache: this is a technique to accelerate data reads. As data is read from hard drives, the B810n will prefetch nearby data that it predicts will be also be read. Your benefit is faster access and less waiting.

 

Dual Ethernet Ports: Bond Together, or Failover

The B810n has dual Gigabit Ethernet ports. This can be bonded together to provide approximately twice the read/write performance you get via a single port. Or they can be used to provide connect to two different subnets. Or they can be used in an "active/passive" mode so that if one port fails the other takes over.

 

Share Files With OS X, Windows, or Linux Users 

Don't worry about compatibility - Drobo 810n works with computers running OS X, Windows, or Linux operating systems. By default, Drobo 810n uses the SMB file sharing protocol to talk to OS X or Windows. If you set up a share for Time Machine backup, it uses Apple's AFP protocol. Linux users pick which file sharing method to use on their system.
