Description
Drobo 5Dt (Turbo)

All the Power You Need as a Creative Pro

Creative power users require high quality, high performance solutions for media editing and storage. The Drobo 5Dt is built on the award winning functionality of the 5D with blazing fast performance and includes Drobo’s unprecedented flexibility, data protection, and expandability. The 5Dt offers both High Speed ThunderboltTM 2 and USB 3.0, providing flexibility across two commonly used interfaces. The Turbo Edition supports 4k Thunderbolt connected displays, includes an mSATA card for increased performance of up to 30% on streaming video and 3x read performance via Drobo’s Hot Data Cache. Three years of DroboCare support is included on every 5Dt sold to ensure the best storage experience ever.

Leave Your Limitations Behind… Go BeyondRAID®

Built on our award-winning BeyondRAID technology, the Drobo 5Dt 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.
Drobo takes the up front guess work out of determining the amount of capacity you require. Buy the capacity you need today, and when you need more storage, simply replace your smallest drive with a larger one and immediately use that capacity in seconds. You can even mix and match drive brands, capacities and speeds.
To further enhance your experience, every Drobo comes with Smart Volume technology. Smart Volumes™ are thinly provisioned volumes that automatically utilize capacity as needed from a common pool of storage. Additionally, as data is deleted, free capacity is returned to that common pool, immediately increasing the available capacity.
BeyondRAID along with Smart Volumes deliver next-generation storage technology by bringing together enhanced data protection, reliability, expandability, and ease-of-use.

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.
Control How Much Storage Time Machine Uses
Apple’s guidelines are to set the storage space for Time Machine at twice the size of the Mac’s hard drive that is to be protected. Time Machine users know that it will gradually use all available disk space without an easy way to stop this from happening. With Drobo you can easily control the maximum storage space available for Time Machine backups through Drobo Dashboard. When you install a Drobo, Drobo Dashboard prompts to see if you want to create a dedicated storage volume for Time Machine’s use, allowing you to set the size of this volume.

Compact, Expandable Design

Expanding your storage capacity with a Drobo couldn’t be easier. There’s no long, risky process to add capacity to a Drobo – no need to go through the time consuming and complex administration of destroying your RAID sets and recreating with larger drives; and then finally restoring from your backup. When it’s time to add storage capacity to a Drobo, simply insert additional disk drives or replace the smallest disks with larger ones. The unique compact, carrier-less drive-bay design results in an attractive, efficient storage array that won’t dominate your valuable desk space.
If you’re running low on space, the lights on the front of the Drobo 5Dt tell you exactly what to do. The innovative, user-friendly industrial design allows you to add or hot-swap larger capacity drives, without tools, on the fly, for storage expansion with zero downtime. Expand your capacity without missing a beat while safely storing and backing up all personal data with ease and peace of mind. It’s that simple!

Capacity and Performance

Drobo 5Dt comes with an mSATA card included to enable our patented Drobo Accelerator Caching technology right out of the box. The Drobo Accelerator Cache keeps a copy of your most frequently accessed data so that it can be delivered even faster when you need it.
The accelerator cache can dramatically speed up loading large photo libraries and other I/O intensive operations, smoothing out workflows and allowing you to start being productive sooner.
To keep capacity of your Drobo 5Dt at a maximum, the Drobo Accelerator Bay accepts an industry-standard mSATA SSD, leaving all five 3.5” drives bays available for high-capacity HDDs.
If getting the fastest performance possible is your thing, you can also load up every drive bay with SSDs. Drobo 5Dt gives you the flexibility to choose!

Connectivity Without Compromise

The Drobo 5Dt is the only 5 bay direct attached storage array that offers Thunderbolt 2 AND USB 3.0.
Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports allows you to simultaneously connect up to six Thunderbolt devices at once and will support a one 4K display. With bi-directional 20 Gb/s performance, Thunderbolt 2 technology allows all devices in the chain to achieve maximum throughput.
This latest generation of USB 3.0 also offers high-performance connectivity and is backward compatible with any computer running qualified versions of Mac OS X or Windows.

Power Protecting Your Critical Data

The Drobo 5Dt doesn’t just protect from drive failures, it also includes a battery backup system that protects all data in memory or cache. That’s right, Enterprise grade data protection for you on your Drobo 5Dt! If power spontaneously goes away, the Drobo stays alive long enough for the data to be written to disk, ensuring your important information is always safe. The onboard battery recharges itself and is designed to last for the life of the product.

DroboCare™

The Drobo 5Dt is an enhanced “Turbo Edition” Drobo that includes 3-Year DroboCare coverage free of charge with product registration. DroboCare extends beyond the standard hardware warranty and, if something goes wrong, we’ll send you a replacement Drobo right away, so you’ll have it as quickly as possible – even before you send us back your Drobo. We call it “Advanced Replacement”; we also expedite your shipment and pay for shipping both ways. With DroboCare, phone support is available 24×7, starting the day you activate DroboCare*.
*Please note that DroboCare does not cover failed hard drives.

  PROS
designThe Drobo 5DT is a beautiful Thunderbolt 2 RAID box for your Mac or Windows System, will fit in nicely in most environments.
featuresIt may appear simple, but with the free inbuilt SSD and Beyond RAID letting you mix drives, it's a good Mac buy!
performanceExcellent performance over both Thunderbolt 1, Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0
valueNot the cheapest RAID enclosure with Thunderbolt for Mac, but certainly one of the most proficient and with the free SSD included and Repair service for FREE, it's a real contender!

  CONS
designIf you like all your Mac products in white, you will be disappointed.
featuresOnly feature missing is network connectivity - but for that you need the Drobo 5N
performanceA shortage of apps mean you will mostly use this with apps like Apple Time Machine and fast access to 4k and HD footage in Adobe, photoshop and Final Cu Pro
valueIf you only want a Basic Thunderbolt 2 enclosures and do not care about RAID, Free SSD or repair warranty cover, then this will seem rather expensive.

My 2nd gen. Drobo shut down with increasing frequency, causing Lightroom to reboot itself over half a day each time. I decided to take no further chances and despite the cost found the 5Dt a little more cheaply at Span. Span were polite and helpful. I was able to collect it. The transfer of existing drives to the new new machine worked OK without loss but I was extremely careful to follow the online instructions. This Drobo seems quieter, much faster and I like the on/off switch allowing me to control when I want it running. It is just a few weeks old but it is working well and I am very pleased, restoring confidence and feeling that it was worth the expense.

3 years of DroboCare support included, that sounds like peace of mind
