Data Robotics Scores Again with the DroboPro

Okay, I already love the Drobo, but this goes well beyond that! My current Drobo holds up to 4 drives at any size and connects either via USB2.0 or ethernet (droboshare). I was waiting around to get the newer firewire800 model until I saw this.

The DroboPro can handle up to 8 drives of varying size and connects via USB, firewire or ISCSI (ethernet based SCSI or something like that).

I can contest that the Drobo has saved me a couple times through its ease of file management and storage failure security. I can only imagine the possibilities with a single unit that can hold up to 16 TB of data.
