The Drobo 5N was designed with one purpose in mind: to deliver the best ever experience sharing storage and accessing data. From the moment you plug it in and it is instantly accessible on your network, youll know theres nothing like it. The Drobo 5N is perfect for any connected home, home office, or small office environment needing a simple, safe device for sharing and backing up data over the network.

Not only is Drobo 5N fast, but its easy-to-use, expandable, flexible, and protected—exactly whats expected from a Drobo. You can safely store and edit photos, videos, and audio files as well as store and back up all the computers on your network .

Data Protection and Expandability Made Simple
Built on award-winning BeyondRAID™ technology with single- or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5N protects your data without any user interaction, even in the event of multiple drive failures. And like all Drobo products, its fast and easy to set up and no software configuration required to have accessible storage on your network.
Drives can be added or hot-swapped on-the-fly for storage expansion with zero downtime. If youre 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.

High-Speed Connectivity
The Drobo 5N is equipped with a single Gigabit Ethernet port for network connectivity and connects
directly to your network to make sharing your data easy. Just plug it into any switch or wireless router and youre ready to go. You can even connect the Drobo 5N directly to the Ethernet port on your computer without having to configure any settings.

Capacity AND Performance
Data-Aware Tiering technology, usually reserved for business-class storage solutions, is also available in this networked Drobo. It intelligently uses the high-performance SSDs to accelerate performance of the storage array, allowing applications such as Adobe Lightroom and Apple iPhoto or iTunes 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 doesnt just protect you from a drive failure, but also from potential data loss after a power outage. Drobo 5N 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 non-volatile storage. The battery recharges itself and lasts for the life of the product.

Centralized Backup for Your Entire Network
The Drobo 5N enables network backup for Mac and Windows users. If youre backing up your Windows 8 computer to your Drobo, File History is supported. The Drobo 5N also delivers the most seamless support for OS X Time Machine
