The Coronavirus outbreak during the past year has severely impacted the global supply chain of technology companies, and we have recently experienced delays in production due to the global supply shortage of chips used in processors for our Drobo products. 

We are in close contact with all of our suppliers, and we are trying to mitigate any further delay in the supply chain. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we ramp up Drobo supply. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
