Drobo 5C

Description:

Leave Your Limitations Behind…Go BeyondRAID®

Built on our award-winning BeyondRAID technology, the Drobo 5C protects your data without any intervention – even in the event of multiple drive failures. You can even switch from single to dual disk redundancy with a single click, ensuring enterprise-level dual parity data protection when required. Drobo’s with BeyondRAID are also self-healing and have virtual hot-spares. If a drive happens to fail, Drobo will automatically re-layout the data to return to a protected state without disruption.

Enhanced Backup for Time Machine

Time Machine and Drobo: A Perfect Pairing
Apple’s Time Machine was designed to make backing up your files simple and painless. Pairing Time Machine with Drobo improves your data protection by ensuring your data is safe in the event of hard drive failure.

Upgrading With the Remarkable Drobo 5C

Once you experience how easy it is to use a Drobo you’ll know there is nothing that compares – but that isn’t the only remarkable thing about it.

Drobo takes upgradability to the next level. Not only can you upgrade capacity with no downtime by adding new drives or replacing smaller drives with larger ones, you can seamlessly upgrade to a new Drobo 5C by simply removing the disk pack from your current system, and moving it to a new Drobo 5C. Upgrading not only gives you an instant performance or capacity boost, but also delivers all the other benefits of the new Drobo.
