On April 8, 2010, the Gestalt IT Tech Field Day Boston delegates sat down with Data Robotics. This discussion covered the company’s BeyondRAID technology and their Drobo product line. The session culminated with a roundtable discussion of the company, products, and market.
As usual, the Tech Field Day event received massive amounts of attention, generating thousands of tweets and dozens of blog posts and videos from delegates and bystanders alike. We will attempt to collect those links here for reference and review.

Drobo is announcing the DroboFS with Gigabit Ethernet interface and support for direct replication between units and to storage clouds using an external storage partner.
In November 2003, Data Robotics Inc. released two new products, the Drobo S and the Drobo Elite. Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to a closed session with the folks from Data Robotics as they had some interesting news about a new product they are announcing today called the Drobo FS.
The lack of VMware VMFS support in the Drobo is disappointing, but using DroboPro with Hyper-V is much more rewarding. Thin Provisioning is back on the agenda; Hyper-V uses NTFS to store hypervisor guests, making it perfect for use with DroboPro.
