Product Overview 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.

Mix & Match ANY Size if SATA Hard Drives - the 5D will Sort It!

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.

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 96 TB of usable capacity. And, the bi-directional 10 Gbps 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 compatibility with any computer running compatible versions of Mac OS X or Windows. NOTE: Thunderbolt is currently supported only on Mac OS X.

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.
