Mario also breaks down some of the new naming convention for the latest line and talks about the future of expanding Drobo’s BeyondRAID technology.  He also covers some of the future when it comes to using smaller form factor drives and responds to the hacking community.  Jim gives Mario some ideas of what he would like to see in the future including some tips for the Home Server Community.

Mario also announces the first ever Drobo on Windows Home Server 2011 Add-in challenge.  If you are a Windows Home Server Add-in developer and write a successful add-in for the WHS 2011 platform that manages a Drobo unit, Drobo will reward you with one!  For details, watch for the “official announcement” over at the after Wednesday night’s live show (10/12/2011)
