Drobo gives a good starting point of power requirements, listing a standby power value of 13 watts and an average power usage value of 82 watts with four drives inside. In our tests we measured the power usage with eight 3.

At its peak the Drobo Bi needed watts at startup, lowering to an idle of 94 watts once the startup processes finished. With 2MB transfers in IOMeter, the power usage increased to 96 watts for write and 97 watts for read.

With 4K random read activity the Bi needed 97 watts. Drobo Elite Storage Array the system was no longer in use and had gone idle spinning down the installed hard drives, the power draw dropped to just 17 watts, well below most traditional network storage devices we test. Power usage while off though was one of the higher totals, measuring 8 watts.

For most businesses however, time while off and not unplugged is minimal. Conclusion When it comes to ease of use and gigabit-saturating transfer speeds, the Drobo Bi doesn't disappoint. It took just minutes to get the system up and running and when disk Drobo Elite Storage Array was simulated, it was back at full operating speeds in no time.

For small business and enterprise users, this translates into dollars saved and increased productivity that could otherwise be wasted during downtime. While most systems still remain online in a degraded performance mode, speeds do Drobo Elite Storage Array and can be a huge problem if clients are relying on housed data and need fast throughput speeds. The Drobo doesn't suffer from this problem though, meaning during a failure, it's quick to get back to full speed. The interface is also a limiting factor, we were able to tap the max bandwidth in a few cases, with 7, RPM hard drives.
