PRESS RELEASE: Data Robotics Launches Onine Drobo Store In Europe
LONDON, UK –November 12, 2009 - Data Robotics, Inc., the company that is changing the way the world stores digital content, today launched its online Drobo Store into Europe. The company has already successfully rolled out the Drobo Store in the USA and Canada.
Business and consumer customers from more than a dozen European countries can now visit www.drobostore.com/eu to purchase the company’s award-winning DroboPro, Drobo and DroboShare storage solutions. Maintaining Data Robotics’ 100 percent channel strategy, all orders taken through the new online store will be fulfilled by Digital River, a leading European online reseller.
Mike Collins, EMEA channel director at Data Robotics, said: "We’ve sold more than 85,000 units worldwide already, and demand for the Data Robotics product portfolio continues to grow rapidly in Europe. Launching a dedicated online store was the quickest and most efficient way for European customers who don’t have their own local reseller to get access to the products they need." DroboPro and Drobo, respectively eight- and four-drive storage arrays, provide small and medium businesses (SMB), creative professionals, and consumers with a hugely simplified storage experience, enhanced by advanced self-monitoring and self-healing features that ensure the highest levels of data protection. DroboShare turns the four-drive Drobo into a network attached storage (NAS) appliance.
