Data Robotics SuperSpeeds storage appliance

USB 3.0 joins eSata, Firewire 800

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Data Robotics has added SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to its line up of expandable storage boxes, courtesy of a new model, the Drobo S.

Data Robotics Drobo S

Said unit has room for five 3.5in Sata hard drives, which are auto-partitioned in such a way as to allow you to keep adding fresh, larger-capacity disks on the fly and to protect your data from duff drives.

The big change is round the back, though: a B-style USB 3.0 port joins two Firewire 800 ports and an eSata connector. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, so the Drobo S will work with computers that haven't gone SuperSpeed yet.

The Drobo S is available at a starting price of £598 for a model sans drives. It's available now. ®
