    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.
