Very cool. The site is getting slammed at the moment though. 8-bay drobo with immediate support for up to 16TB, and future proof for more. Has firewire, USB and iSCSI/ethernet. Rack mountable and it looks pretty. Too bad the starting price is $1300.

Seen one before at my previous job. It was used for backing up some molecular modeling information. As more space is needed, drives can be added until a unit is full on the fly from what she said.

It's like raid for idiots not that anyone that uses it is one of course.

Pretty much. The use "BeyondRAID" which can adjust the volume and disk sizes almost on the fly (there is a work period between an add/remove).

There is also a capacity planner that tells you how much space is taken up by redundancy and what you get with your drive configuration.
