The latest generation 5 Bay NAS, the Drobo 5N2 delivers an unparalleled user experience for data sharing, secure backup, remote access and disaster recovery solutions. The 5N2 is the fastest, network attached Drobo available to prosumers and provides up to 2x performance boost with an upgraded processor and port bonding option. By implementing a level of automation usually preserved for more expensive solutions, and still maintaining the award-winning simplicity found in all Drobos, the 5N2 is the easiest to use NAS on the market.
Drobo 5N2 is designed to optimize and simplify work ow in connected homes and small office environments using Drobo’s simple, safe and smart BeyondRAIDTM technology. Using the solution as a central backup in a connected home, multiple computers can speedily access the rich media files. Small office environments can utilize secure file sharing and Drobo’s Disaster Recovery (DR) feature to automatically backup the data to an offsite 5N2. To extend the functionality of the Drobo, 5N2 is compatible with the myDrobo App Platform, allowing for remote access to data, media streaming and cloud backup.
Data Protection and Expandability Made Simple
Built on award-winning BeyondRAIDTM technology with single- or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5N2 protects your data without any user interaction, even in the event of multiple drive failures. In addition, Drobo’s simplicity provides a quick, seamless setup and software configuration is not required to access storage on your network. Drives can be added or hot-swapped and updated in real time for storage expansion with zero downtime. Just add a drive in an empty bay or remove a smaller drive and replace it with a larger one, when needed.
The Drobo 5N2 is equipped with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for network connectivity and makes sharing your data easy by connecting directly to the network. The two ports provide bonding support, also known as Adaptive Link Bonding, for link failover and aggregation without Ethernet switch support. This increases performance and compensates for network connection problems.
Capacity And Performance
Usually reserved for larger enterprise-class storage solutions, the Drobo 5N2 gives you the option to implement Hot Data Caching through the Drobo Accelerator Bay. This feature intelligently uses high-performance ash to accelerate performance, allowing the fastest possible access to your data.
Power Protecting Your Critical Data
Drobo doesn’t just protect you from a drive failure, but also from potential data loss after a power outage. Drobo 5N2 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.
Drobo Disaster Recovery
With Drobo DR you can set up a pair of 5N2s to automatically make an offsite copy of your data. Simple to set up and manage, the reliable DroboDR seamlessly replicates your data to another 5N2 ensuring data availability in case of disaster. Even better, the remote 5N2 stores all user account information so recovery is painless.
