The Drobo 5N was designed to deliver the best file sharing experience available. From the moment you open the box, you’ll know there’s nothing like it. It’s perfect for any connected home, home office, or business environment that needs simple, safe storage for sharing and backing up data over the network. Not only is the Drobo 5N fast, but also easy-to-use, expandable, and automatically protects against hard drive failure(s). It’s perfect for storing large collections of photos, movies, music and documents and integration with Apple Time Machine makes it an excellent way to back up all your Macs to a single device.
Drobo storage arrays have always been designed with the user in mind. From the tool less design that allows hard drives to be inserted without carriers or screws to the variable-speed cooling fan, the compact and quiet 5N was designed to work just as well on your desk as it does in an office environment. Users can also dim the lights and configure drives to spin down when not in use.
Built on award-winning BeyondRAID technology with single or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5N protects your data without any user interaction. Drives can be added or replaced 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 slot or remove a smaller drive and replace it with a larger one.
The Drobo 5N is equipped with high-speed Gigabit Ethernet and connects directly to your network to make sharing your data easy. Just plug it into any switch or wireless router and you're ready to go. You can even connect the Drobo 5N directly to the Ethernet port on your computer without having to configure any settings.
Most storage arrays use either all hard drives or all SSDs. The Drobo 5N delivers the best of both worlds by intelligently combining hard drives and SSDs to deliver both capacity and performance. Using a small form-factor SSD boosts performance of popular applications such as Apple iPhoto and Adobe Lightroom by up to 10X!
Drobo doesn’t just protect your critical data from drive failure, but also from power outages. The Drobo 5N includes a battery that protects all data--whether active or at rest. Should the power go out while using your Drobo, the battery will protect everything until the power is restored. The battery recharges automatically and is designed to last for the entire life of the product.
