Drobo Drobo 5D3 DRDR6A31 RAID options

  • JBOD- is a cost-effective network storage solution. If you have a lot of temporarily data to store, JBODs are an economical solution. Mind that the data is not critical or you have an effective backup scheme in place. JBOD is either a single or number of disks which are grouped together and presented to the Operating System as a single volume, called 'Spanning'. If you lose a single disk in the JBOD then you possibly will lose data, as the concept of a JBOD does not include not fault tolerance.
  • RAID 0 is ideal for non-critical storage of data that have to be read/written at a high speed, such as on a video editing station or an image retouching. RAID 0 offers great performance, both in read and write operations. All storage capacity is used, there is no overhead.
  • RAID 1 (mirrored drive) is ideal for critical storage, like accounting systems. It is also suitable for small servers in which only two data drives will be used (disc mirroring). It offers excellent read speed and a write-speed that is comparable to that of a single drive. In case a drive fails, data do not have to be rebuild, they just have to be copied to the replacement drive (mirroring hdd ). It can be used as back up mirror.
  • RAID 5 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. It is ideal for file and application servers that have a limited number of data drives. Very fast read data transactions while write data transactions are bit slower. In case if drive fails, you still have access to all data, even while the failed drive is being replaced and system rebuilds the data on the new drive.
  • RAID 6 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. Similar to RAID 5, read data transactions are very fast. Two drives can fail and you still have access to all data, even while the failed drives are being replaced. It makes it more secure.
  • RAID 10 combines pros and cons of RAID 0 and RAID 1 in one single system. If one drive fails, the rebuild time is very fast because data being copied from the surviving mirror to a new drive.

Hello from Switzerland. Is the 5D3 available for delivery to Switzerland (without disks)? Can it be sent through the Swiss Post or are shipping through courier services?

You state that Thunderbolt 3 can only be used on a Mac, but I have a Thunderbolt 3 port on my pc running Windows 10. Can I use my Thunderbolt 3 port to connect to your disk array? I'm only interseted in using Thunderbolt 3 because of the tremendous speed that this interface uses.
The Drobo 5D3 is fully Windows compatible, as it says in the specifications :

Operating System Support

  • Apple® Macintosh® macOS 10.10 and higher

  • Microsoft® Windows® 10

  • Microsoft® Windows® 8

  • Microsoft® Windows® 7

The Drobo is one of the few multi bay RAID-able thunderbolt 3 enclosures out there. Excellent for speed future-proofing. Definitely worth looking at as an option to the usual brands.

If you media-focused go for a Drobo, way better for managing than a QNAP. I bought this 5D3 and am running mine and my clients data off it. Its speedy, quiet and very user friendly.

Finally I got my Drobo for my Mac Pro with thunderbolt 3. Great for video editing!
