MacVoices #17174: Drobo CEO Mihir Shah On New Models and Drobo Perceptions

Drobo CEO Mihir Shah joins us to discuss their two latest models, the Drobo 5D3 (recently reviewed on MacVoices) and the Drobo 5N2, the next step in their network-attached storage solutions. He talks about Drobo’s penetration in Asia and their surprise connection with Bollywood. Drobo’s mission is to make storage simple, but keeping it simple can be difficult. Mihir shares some of the challenges with continuing to advance and expand the platform while balancing that against legacy software and hardware issues, and offers some tips on how to keep your Drobo as stable and reliable as the day you bought it. He also provides a coupon code for you to save $50 on the Drobo 5D3!
