The Pros:400% speed improvement performance over the Drobo S due to dual core CPU, additional RAM. 5 drive bays for support up to 10TB. First Drobo to be a true NAS - includes Gigabit Ethernet for network connectivity without the need for an online PC host.
The Cons:High price.
The Data Robotics Drobo FS is a full-fledged networked-storage device released in April 2010 as a mass upgrade from the DroboShare. The FS sports the same chassis, but it adds along a dual-core CPU, more RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and a plethora of minor tweaks, the result of which is a 400% increase in performance speed.
