Data Robotics has just announced two new versions of its Drobo disk storage solution. The Drobo Elite is now the top of the line model with 2 iSCSI ports and no direct connect options. Audiophile will likely be more interested in the Drobo S. The S model has five drive bays allowing up to ten TB of disk space. In addition to the added drive bay Data Robotics has included an eSATA port for vastly increased speed over FireWire 800 and USB 2.0. eSATA does have some very short cable length requirements so the DroboShare is still a recommended option with the Drobo S if a music server must reside in ones listening room.
Here is a link to the Data Robotics website for more information. Below is a chart showing the differences between the current four Drobo models.
