DROBO 5C


Drobo 5C is an excellent storage drive, if you want to keep your data protected all the time. It does not have the Thunderbolt ports, but it has USB-C port, which is ultra-fast and is great for backup. Like all Drobos, this model protects your data from single, or dual hard drive failures. Drobo 5C will immediately start rebuilding your data if the hard drive fails, in order to keep protecting your data using available space. Drobo does “data scrubbing”, meaning it is reading data searching for inconsistencies or corruptions, and fixes them in the background. Drobo 5C is equipped with a battery, that will protect your data either in memory, or a cache. So, if power goes down at your home, Drobo will move every in-transit data to onboard flash in your Drobo so it will also be protected. It will send this protected data back to your disk drives when the power is restored. This, as well as several other features, ensure your important information is safe and sound at all times. The battery is fully automatic, meaning it recharges itself, and manufacturers stated that the battery will last as long as your Drobo. This particular model has support for up to 64 terabyte drive sizes. However, you have an option to begin with much less. Basically, you can start with the amount you need today, and afterwards you will be able to add more drives or replace the current small ones with larger ones. This makes this model very flexible, sophisticated and easy-to-use.
