In a clever piece of marketing, Drobo are offering discounts to Windows Home Server users who are unhappy with the news about Drive Extender being removed.
Here is what Drobo have said:
Drobo has always been the simplest home storage, making it the perfect save for stranded windows home server users.
Looking to Migrate?
Drobo FS was designed with one purpose in mind: to deliver the best file sharing experience ever. From the moment you plug it in and see it instantly appear, you’ll know there’s nothing like it! The all-in-one Drobo FS is perfect for any connected home, home office, or small office environment needing a simple, safe device for sharing and backing up files over the network.
Looking to Add?
Using the USB, Firewire or eSATA ports on your Windows Home Server, you can use Drobo or Drobo S to add reliable disk capacity.

Just add any SATA drive and Drobo takes care of the rest; it is a hard drive that never fails and never gets full!
