Defying Data Loss with Drobo’s BeyondRAID: What Sets It Apart from Traditional Storage Solutions?

Are you tired of losing precious data due to storage failures? Frustrated with complicated and unreliable traditional storage solutions? Look no further! In this blog post, we are going to introduce you to Drobo’s BeyondRAID technology – a game-changer in the world of data storage. Say goodbye to fears of data loss and say hello to peace of mind. Join us as we explore what sets Drobo’s BeyondRAID apart from traditional storage solutions and understand why it is the ultimate choice for safeguarding your valuable information. Get ready to defy data loss like never before!

Introduction to Drobo’s BeyondRAID

Drobo’s BeyondRAID is a revolutionary storage solution that offers increased protection against data loss. Unlike traditional storage solutions, BeyondRAID provides users with the ability to create “virtual copies” of their data. This means that if one copy of your data is lost or corrupted, you can simply revert to a previous version without having to start from scratch.

BeyondRAID also offers increased flexibility when it comes to capacity and performance. With traditional storage solutions, you are typically limited to a certain number of drives and a specific RAID configuration. With BeyondRAID, you can mix and match different types and sizes of drives, as well as choose from a variety of RAID configurations. This allows you to tailor your storage solution to fit your specific needs.

If you are looking for a storage solution that offers increased protection against data loss and increased flexibility, then Drobo’s BeyondRAID is the perfect solution for you!

Key Features of BeyondRAID

RAID is a storage technology that has been around for many years, providing a way to store data on multiple disks and improve performance and reliability. BeyondRAID is a new storage technology from Drobo that offers many advantages over traditional RAID solutions. Here are some of the key features of BeyondRAID:

1. Flexible Storage Capacity: With BeyondRAID, you can start with as little as two disks and add more as needed. There is no need to purchase all the disks upfront, which saves money and allows you to scale your storage capacity as needed.

2. Automatic Protection: BeyondRAID automatically protects your data in the event of disk failure. You can also optionally create protected copies of your data (called “snapshots”) to prevent data loss from accidental deletion or corruption.

3. Easy to Use: BeyondRAID is designed to be easy to use, even for non-technical users. The web-based interface makes it simple to configure and manage your storage, and there is no need for special training or knowledge to use it effectively.

4. Affordable: BeyondRAID is very affordable, especially when compared to traditional enterprise-class storage solutions. The flexible storage capacity and easy-to-use interface make it a great choice for small businesses or home users who want reliable storage without breaking the bank.

How Does BeyondRAID Help Protect Against Data Loss?

Most storage solutions use a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) system to protect data from disk failure. BeyondRAID is different in that it offers protection against not only disk failure, but also against data corruption and accidental deletion.

BeyondRAID uses a combination of parity and mirroring to protect data. Parity is a technique that protects against data loss by creating a second copy of data on a separate disk. Mirroring is a technique that protects against data corruption by writing data to two disks at the same time.


BeyondRAID also offers protection against accidental deletion with its Snapshot feature. Snapshots are point-in-time copies of data that can be restored if needed.

Pros and Cons of Using BeyondRAID

There are many storage solutions on the market today, but not all of them are created equal. BeyondRAID is a unique storage solution that offers several advantages over traditional storage solutions.

One of the biggest advantages of BeyondRAID is its ability to protect data against multipledrive failures. With traditional storage solutions, if two or more drives fail, all of the data stored on those drives is lost. With BeyondRAID, however, only the data on the failed drives is lost – the rest of the data is still intact and accessible. This makes BeyondRAID an ideal solution for businesses that need to protect their data against hardware failures.

Another advantage of BeyondRAID is its flexibility. BeyondRAID can be configured to meet the specific needs of each individual business. This means that businesses can tailor their storage solution to their specific needs, rather than being forced to conform to a one-size-fits-all solution.

BeyondRAID also offers excellent scalability. As businesses grow and their storage needs increase, they can easily add more drives to their BeyondRAID array without having to reconfigure or replace their existing storage solution. This makes BeyondRAID an ideal long-term storage solution for businesses that anticipate future growth.

Of course, no storage solution is perfect, and there are a few disadvantages to using BeyondRAID as well. One potential downside is that BeyondRAID requires a dedicated controller – it cannot be used with a standard server or NAS

Alternatives to BeyondRAID

When it comes to data storage, there are a lot of options out there. But if you’re looking for something that goes beyond the traditional RAID setup, Drobo’s BeyondRAID is worth considering. Here’s what sets it apart:

1. BeyondRAID offers protection against two drive failures, instead of the usual one. So if one drive fails, your data is still safe.

2. BeyondRAID also offers the ability to expand your storage capacity without having to rebuild your entire array. With traditional RAID, you would have to start from scratch if you wanted to add more drives.

3. BeyondRAID automatically stripes and mirrors data across all drives in the array, so you don’t have to worry about manual configuration. This means better performance and more reliability.

4. BeyondRAID provides an easy-to-use web interface for managing your storage array. No need for complex command line tools or third-party software.


By using Drobo’s BeyondRAID technology, businesses and individuals alike can enjoy the benefits of increased data security without having to sacrifice their time or resources. With its advanced RAID management system and easy setup process, any user can take advantage of this unique feature that sets it apart from traditional storage solutions. So if you’re looking for a reliable way to protect your important data, look no further than Drobo’s BeyondRAID Storage Solution.
