Morning Cup O' Joe

Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time.

Redundant storage for the non-technical

I for one haven’t hit the point of feeling like I need a RAID at home, but as we move to a more and more electronic based society, trusting your data to a laptop drive and possibly a single external USB disk for backup starts getting a little sketchy.  This product, while not cheap, may be a solution for those of us that just want simple stuff that works.

Drobo “The world’s first storage robot”.  Somehow I kind of doubt the validity of that statement, but maybe it’s a device that your mom could actually upgrade storage on without having to understand how to format a drive or migrate data.

Interesting concept at least.

  1. I’ve heard about Drobo. The “no-hassle” features are intriguing in the sense that it can pass the “mom” test, but power users might be disappointed by the relatively slow data through-put compared to a regular USB/Firewire external hard drive.

    I’d still want a regular external HD for quick access and portability.

    That being said, though, I can see this being pretty awesome for Mac OSX Time Machine since that app runs mainly in the background.
