Description

Drobo 5C is designed from the ground up to be an affordable and secure storage array for everyone - based on Drobo's BeyondRAID™ technology. It includes the latest USB Type C connector to easily connect Drobo to your computer. The Drobo 5C, a 5-Bay memory array with up to 64TB volume size, protects data in the event of hard disk and sudden power failures while supporting advanced self-healing. By creating a second volume and a bootable backup, both your computer operating system and the application files are protected.

Drobo 5C allows the use of a second volume with a fixed storage capacity. Drobo reserves the space you specify for this volume and releases the remaining capacity for other data. It is not only fast, but also user-friendly, expandable, flexible and secure - and thus meets all expectations of a Drobo. You can easily save and edit photos and videos, as well as store and back up personal data.

Hard drive

Hard drive

A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating discs (platters) coated with magnetic material. An HDD retains its data even when powered off. Data is read in a random-access manner, meaning individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order rather than just sequentially. An HDD consists of one or more rigid ("hard") rapidly rotating discs (platters) with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm to read and write data to the surfaces.

Data storage properties

i

Data storage properties

A data storage device is a device for recording (storing) information (data). Recording can be done using virtually any form of energy, spanning from manual muscle power in handwriting, to acoustic vibrations in phonographic recording, to electromagnetic energy modulating magnetic tape and optical discs. A storage device may hold information, process information, or both. A device that only holds information is a recording medium. Devices that process information (data storage equipment) may either access a separate portable (removable) recording medium or a permanent component to store and retrieve information.

Hard drive form factor

The dimensions of hard drives are traditionally given in inches. These are not exact size specifications, but a form factor. Common form factors for width are 5.25″, 3.5″, 2.5″ and 1.8″, for height e.g. 1″, ½″ and ⅜″. The inch values usually correspond approximately to the diameter of the plate, not to the width of the drive housing. In some cases, however, smaller plates are used to enable higher speeds.

5C, für 5 x 3.5" HDDs (External, USB 3.0, USB Type-C)

Tolles Gerät, das nur durch die Probleme mit den Kabeln keine 5 Sterne verdient hat.

ACHTUNG!

-> Dieses Gerät wurde mir NUR mit deutschen und englischen Stromkabeln geliefert! Zum Glück hatte ich noch einen Adapter herumliegen.

-> Das Gerät verlangt den Einbau von 2 Festplatten bevor man es istalliert. Jegliche Daten, die bereits auf den Festplatten sind, werden gelöscht.

Ansonsten finde ich das Teil super; endlich nicht mehr 3-4 externe Festplatten + Kabelsalat und weit weniger Gefahr diese Daten zu verlieren.

5C, für 5 x 3.5" HDDs (External, USB 3.0, USB Type-C)

Excellent scalable storage system that saves the environment

I have bought this unit as a stopgap measure between an external 4TB HDD and a full-blown RAID system such as LaCie 6big or 12big. By inserting the 4TB HDD and a few older 2TB HDDs into the Drobo, I got enough capacity for the foreseeable future. (The 2TB HDDs would otherwise have to be recycled, even though they still function.) The unit is very quiet -- I can hear the fan only when I put my ear right next to the fan. The best feature of all Drobos is the ability to use any 3.5" SATA HDD, as opposed to conventional RAID systems that require HDDs to be of the same size and model. When you need more storage capacity, you just replace the lowest-capacity HDD with a larger-capacity HDD.
The only gripe I have is the external power supply: I would have preferred it to be internal... but then the Drobo fan would have to run at higher revs and make more noise. Ergo 5 stars.

5C, für 5 x 3.5" HDDs (External, USB 3.0, USB Type-C)

beste DAS-Lösung die ich bisher im markt gesehen habe

sehr gut. sehr schnelle datenübertragung. sensationelles beyond raid system (ähnlich wie raid 5) mit der Möglichkeit unterschiedlich grosse festplatten zu betreiben. habe 2x6tb und 3x4tb drinnen und eine nettokapazität von c. 16tb. hängt be miir an einem micro-gen8 server im dauerbetrieb aus kapazitätserweiterungsgründen

tipp: falls übetragungsgeschw. nicht so hoch wie es sein sollte, einfach das usb-c kabel umgekehrt einstecken.. hatte anfänglich nur 30mb write, seit dem ca 140mb im schnitt
