Redefining Professional Storage. Again.
Redesigned from the ground up to meet the data storage needs of today’s media creators and demanding professionals, Drobo 5D builds on the fully automated functionality of previous Drobo arrays by adding blazing fast performance. Leveraging cutting-edge thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity — along with the innovative use of solid state drives (SSDs) — Drobo 5D is the highest performing personal storage array on the planet.
Not only is Drobo 5D fast, but it’s easy-to-use, expandable, flexible, and protected — exactly what’s expected from a Drobo. You can safely store and edit photos and videos as well as store and back up personal data.
Data Protection and Expandability Made Simple
Built on award-winning BeyondRAID™ technology with single- or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5D protects your data without any user interaction, even in the event of multiple drive failures.
Drives can be added or hot-swapped on-the-fly for storage expansion with zero downtime. If you’re running low on space, the lights on the front tell you what to do. Just add a drive in an empty bay or remove a smaller drive and replace it with a larger one.
Power of Thunderbolt and Flexibility of USB
Thunderbolt I/O technology provides performance that’s up to 5x faster than the previous generation Drobo S. This allows you to move large amounts of data in a fraction of the time it used to take.
Drobo 5D is equipped with dual Thunderbolt ports for daisy chaining. Connect up to six Thunderbolt devices and/or a non-Thunderbolt monitor at the end of the chain. With six Drobo 5D arrays in a chain, you can have up to 192 TB of usable capacity. And, the bi-directional 10 Gb/s performance of Thunderbolt allows all devices in the chain to achieve maximum throughput.
Drobo is the only storage array that offers Thunderbolt AND USB 3.0. This latest generation of USB also offers high-performance connectivity and is backward compatible with any computer running qualified versions of Mac OS X or Windows
Enhanced Time Machine Support
Apple’s Time Machine can consume all of the capacity of an external storage system without a simple way to set capacity limits. Utilizing Drobo Dashboard the new Drobo allows users to easily allocate a specific amount of capacity to be dedicated for backups and preserves the remaining pace for data storage.
Capacity AND Performance
Data-Aware Caching technology, usually reserved for business-class storage solutions, is also available in this desktop Drobo. It intelligently uses the high-performance flash in SSDs to accelerate performance of the storage array, allowing applications such as Adobe Premiere and Apple Aperture fast access to data
If getting the fastest performance possible is your thing, you can also load up every drive bay with SSDs. Drobo gives you the flexibility to choose.
Power Protecting Your Critical Data
Drobo doesn’t just protect you from a drive failure, but also from potential data loss after a power outage. Often found only in arrays that cost tens of thousands of dollars, Drobo 5D includes a battery that protects all data in memory, or cache, that is, data on its way to the drives.
When power spontaneously goes away, the battery keeps the Drobo alive long enough for the data to be written to nonvolatile storage. The battery recharges itself and lasts for the life of the product.
Designed for You
Drobo devices have always been space efficient and the Drobo 5D is no exception. It was designed to provide high capacity without taking up a lot of your valuable desk space. It is compact because of Drobo’s unique carrier-less drive bay design, allowing drives to be installed very close to each other. Drobo 5D is also significantly quieter than previous generation Drobos due to its tuned, large, variable-speed cooling fan.
