We have a Drobo at work. It’s a nuisance. It doesn’t always mount to Drobo Dashboard. Loading data is REALLY slow when it’s close to full (i’m talking hours to transfer a few gigs) and Drobo Dashboard isn’t very accurate when displaying the amount of space left. Ours currently says 700GB left, and we’ve been having trouble transferring more data to it. Turns out it’s actually completely full. So we wasted about 2 weeks trying to figure out what the problem was.
Drobo is also expensive. With dual disk redundancy, our Drobo only has about 10TB of available space even though we have 8 2TB drives in it.
I haven’t really decided if its really worth $6000.
