Drobo’s had a bit of a tumultuous history over the years. It’s definitely seen its share of ups and downs. At times, it was the go-to backup solution for photographers around the world. At other times, it was the last product anybody wanted to rely on to keep their work safe. When it comes to Drobo’s future, though, it looks like the journey is now over as its parent company, StorCentric, goes into liquidation.
Drobo filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last June. This gives the company time to restructure and try to get its house in order before things get worse. However, things evidently haven’t gone well, as StorCentric has now transitioned to Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This means they’ve gone into liquidation, and their assets are being sold off to pay their debts. Assets that include Drobo.
