Drobo is a name that is commonly associated with networked attached storage solutions for the home as well as businesses, and they will be targeting the latter niche market this time round with the new B1200i that boasts a dozen bays alongside an iSCSI interface. Of course, apart from the ability to hold more storage space, it will also sport new tricks up its sleeve, such as a trio of iSCSI ports on the back, a new priority on actual fileserver duty and virtualization, support for thin provisioning, and more importantly, off site backup capability with data optimization to get the most out of your purchase. Shipping in Q2 later this year, imagine throwing in a dozen 2TB hard drives into this puppy – surely that should be enough to last you for quite a while! [Press Release]
