Designed for small and medium businesses (SMB), the 72TB (12 x 6TB HDD) B1200i 12-Bay iSCSI NAS Server from Drobo helps provide reliable, high-performance, and self-optimizing storage for server virtualization, email, and data protection. It is able to integrate into TCP/IP networks using its four Gigabit Ethernet ports, one of which is reserved for management, and utilizes the iSCSI protocol to provide simple and powerful storage for your IT environment.
The Drobo B1200i has twelve 3.5" drive bays which are able to support twelve SATA III/II/I hard drives, twelve SAS II/I hard drives, or up to three 2.5" solid state drives and up to nine hard drives. While the drive bays are 3.5", no tools or carriers are required for 2.5" drives. Within its twelve drive bays, this Drobo B1200i is equipped with 12 x 6TB hard drives, for a total storage capacity of 72TB.
The Drobo B1200i has also been built on BeyondRAID technology. If there are any empty drive bays, BeyondRAID allows additional drives to be inserted into the array, where they will be automatically configured. If all drive bays are occupied, simply replace the smallest capacity drive with a larger one and BeyondRAID will handle the rest. BeyondRAID is also what allows drives of varying capacities to work in the same unit, which helps enable future expansion as larger drives become available.
Built with a 3U rackmount form factor and controlled using Drobo's Dashboard software, the B1200i is powered using dual redundant and hot-swappable 100/240 VAC power supplies that operate at 8/5A and 50/60 Hz. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, Red Hate Enterprise Linux, and WMware vSphere. Included are 2 x 6' power cords with power supplies and rackmount parts. This NAS Array is protected by a limited 1-year warranty.
