Leading Digital Agency Deploys Data Robotics' DroboElite to More Easily Store and Protect Its Multimedia Data

Cobra Creative Chose DroboElite for Its Plug and Play Simplicity and Data Protection

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) -  Data Robotics, Inc., the company that is changing the way the world stores and protects digital content, today announced that Cobra Creative, a visionary agency specializing in internet marketing strategy and design, motion graphics, and websites for companies such as NFL Networks, Verizon, and Clif Bar, among others, has deployed Data Robotics' multihost iSCSI SAN solution, DroboElite, to store and protect the company's rapidly growing multimedia data. 

"I'm an art director, not a network storage expert and I didn't want to have to set up and manage a complicated RAID configuration or deal with lost data due to a failed drive," said Jason Csizmadi, senior art director at Cobra Creative. "The best thing about the DroboElite is the simplicity of it. It's basically plug and play. I don't have to worry about any of the technical issues that those other solutions have."

San Francisco, CA-based Cobra Creative deployed DroboElite in 2009 after exceeding the capacity of their two Drobo Second Generation arrays, which the company first purchased in 2007. With two iSCSI ports for lightning-fast throughput and the ability to accommodate eight drives -- as much as 16 terabytes -- DroboElite delivered the scalability and performance the firm needed. With DroboElite, Cobra Creative's mission-critical data is always safe and protected, freeing the company to create compelling and innovative work for their clients rather than using resources to manage data storage architecture.

"Businesses like Cobra Creative need data storage solutions that are both powerful and simple to manage," said Brad Meyer, senior product marketing manager for the business storage line at Data Robotics. "DroboElite is a natural fit because it requires very little setup, even less ongoing management, and it ensures that important data is always safe, protected and accessible."
