Drobo previews its upcoming Thunderbolt storage at Computex

Summary:Drobo is showing off its Thunderbolt offerings at Computex this week, though details on the new devices are scant so far.

Drobo has been relatively quiet on the Thunderbolt front, but it's finally changing that this week.

The company is showing off its first Thunderbolt-powered arrays at Computex in Taiwan. The Verge has some images, which show a pretty small, nice-looking device with room for two pairs of drives. Drobo says its targting the device, which is unnamed so far, for a mid-summer release.

"Stay tuned, and start counting – it may be closer than you think!" Drobo CEO Tom Buiocchi said in a painfully vague blog post on Monday.

With Thunderbolt, Drobo's devices will see higher connectivity speeds and SSD-support alongside Drobo's expected expandability.

Drobo also has some other announcements to make, though the company says that those are coming later this month. In addition to the Computex previews, the company will also be showing off the new devices at Adobe Creative Suite 6 Roadshow events this month.

Check out The Verge for more images of the drives.
