Storage vendor Data Robotics has expanded its Drobo line of automated storage systems.
The company said that the DroboPro FS systems would target the small business market, offering companies hardware for both network-attached storage systems and remote backup appliances.
The DroboPro FS appliances combine a SATA hard drive interface with the Data Robotics BeyondRAID storage platform. The company said that the design allows users to expand capacity by inserting additional SATA drives or by replacing individual drives with larger capacity drives.
Other software bundled with the appliances include thin provisioning and automated backup tools.
The result, said Data Robotics, is a storage and backup system that can be easily deployed and managed by small business users.
"Your typical small business needs data storage and protection, but has limited budget and technical resources," said Data Robotics chief executive Tim Buiocchi.
"We provide the smart alternative to the overly complex and expensive solutions being offered."
The DroboPro FS starts at a cost of £1,279 and supports Windows, OS X and Linux operating systems.
