Both devices also are equipped with USB 3.0 ports to enable a wider range of computing-device users to adopt the new devices. According to the company, USB 3.0 connectivity is an industry first for storage arrays that will provide Windows as well as Mac users with unprecedented storage flexibility.

Storage on the Go

The Drobo 5D is primarily intended for media creators -- people who not only require high capacity storage but also high performance storage. "We have a battery inside the Drobo that actually protects everything that's in memory," Pounds said.

The Drobo 5D can accommodate up to five drives plus the additional SSD bay on the bottom of the unit. The desktop storage array also offers support for up to 16 terabytes of protected, SSD-accelerated data.

By contrast, the Drobo Mini is a ruggedized portable array with a miniaturized power supply and optional carrying case that is aimed at media creators and other professionals who need to have high-capacity storage available wherever they go. According to the company, up to four 2.5-inch drives can be inserted into a Drobo Mini without the need for any additional drive carriers or screws.

Drobo said the pricing and availability for both new products will be announced later this summer.
