Connected Data announces the Drobo Gen 3 storage solution that promises to offers three times the speed of previous model. The device supports USB 3.0 and comes with a friendlier price tag compared with previous generations.
The esoteric Drobo Mini seems to strive to be unique mostly for the sake of uniqueness, and offers very little, if at all, in terms of usability considering its crazily high cost.

Drobo announces two new Thunderbolt storage devices that not only both have a USB 3.0 port but also come with a Thunderbolt cable.
For those bemoaning the lack of network support on last year's innovative Drobo drive, DroboShare offers Gigabit Ethernet and as simple and straightforward a setup as we found with the direct-attached Drobo.

Aiming for small businesses, the data storage specialist announces two models with 8 drive bays and one with 12 bays.
Good news, storage fans -- Data Robotics is about to bless us with the Drobo FS, a brand-new version of the iconic Drobo with a gigabit Ethernet interface. About time, eh?
Data Robotics' latest model is geared for network-attached storage, a technology suited for multi-computer backup and file sharing.
