Lightning Fast Storage for Your Creative Workflow
The Drobo 5D3 is the 3rd generation 5 Bay Direct Attached Storage reimagined for media professionals, content creators, and small businesses. Lightning fast Thunderbolt™ 3 technology delivers the speed, and Drobo’s fully automated BeyondRAID™ functionality provides the simplicity for the best storage experience on the planet.

The 5D3 is easy to use, expandable, flexible and protected – exactly what you would expect from a Drobo. You can safely edit, store and view photos and videos for your 4K/5K workflows, as well as back up your personal and business data.

Data Protection and Expandability Made Simple
Built on award-winning BeyondRAID™ technology with single- or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5D3 protects your data without any user interaction, even in the event of multiple drive failures.

Drives can be added or hot-swapped and updated in real time 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 3 and Flexibility of USB Type-C
Thunderbolt 3 technology provides performance that’s twice as fast as the previous generation, Drobo 5D. This optimizes your performance when transferring large volumes of data.

Drobo 5D3 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for daisy chaining. Connect up to six Thunderbolt devices and/or a non-Thunderbolt monitor at the end of the chain. Supports one 5K monitor display or two 4K monitors. By having 5D3 arrays in a chain, you can have up to 300TB of usable capacity and achieve throughput by enabling the performance of Thunderbolt 3.

Drobo is the only 5 bay direct attached storage array that offers Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.0 Type-C. This latest generation also offers high-performance connectivity and is backward compatible with any computer running supported versions of Mac OS X or Windows.

Enhanced Time Machine Support
Drobo is compatible with Apple’s Time Machine, which will consume the capacity of an external storage system. By utilizing the Drobo Dashboard, you can simply allocate capacity limits for backups and data storage.

Capacity AND Performance
Drobo 5D3 includes a built-in Accelerator Bay, with an mSATA card holder (mSATA card not included). Our patented Accelerator Cache technology keeps a copy of your most frequently accessed data to deliver blazing-fast speeds. The accelerator cache can dramatically speed up loading large photo libraries and other I/O intensive operations, smoothing out workflows allowing you to optimize productivity

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 5D3 includes a battery that protects all data in memory, or cache, that is, data on its way to the drives.

During a sudden power loss, the internal 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 5D3 is no exception. It is 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. Includes Thunderbolt 3 cable.

*Laptops and computers with Thunderbolt 2 ports will require a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter.
