Will Drobos support Thunderbolt?

Data Robotics chief breaks into song

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

CEBIT: Will Data Robotics Drobo storage support Intel's Thunderbolt USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 replacement technology?

The company isn't saying. When asked this at CeBIT, Paul Thackeray, Data Robotics European head broke into song: "Thunderbolt and lightning - very, very frightening me. Galileo, Galileo." Thank you Queen, but I don't think Thunderbolt is very frightening for the Drobo company. Quite the opposite .

Thackeray said Data Robotics was among the first companies in its sector to support USB 3.0, if not the first, and was also an early supporter of FireWire. But he couldn't comment about Thunderbolt support. Read into that what you will.

We read into it that Drobos will likely support Thunderbolt fairly quickly, meaning they will work as very fast-access storage for MacBook Pros and other Macs that support the Thunderbolt PCIe and Display Port link technology.

Thackeray also said there was nothing to say about dual controller Drobos. Hmm, he's just a poor boy. Watch this space. ®
