Integration with Apple Time Machine makes it an excellent way to back up all your Macs to a single device. It comes with port bonding support, also known as Adaptive Link Bonding.

Designed with You in Mind
Drobo storage arrays have always been designed with the user in mind. From the tool less design that allows hard drives to be inserted without carriers or screws to the variable-speed cooling fan, the compact and quiet 5N2 was designed to work just as well on your desk as it does in an office environment. Users can also dim the lights and configure drives to spin down when not in use.
All Your Stuff, Automatically Safe
Built on award-winning BeyondRAID technology with single or dual-drive redundancy, Drobo 5N2 protects your data without any user interaction. Drives can be added or replaced on-the-fly for storage expansion with zero downtime. If you're running low on space, the lights on the front tell you what to do. Just add a drive in an empty slot or remove a smaller drive and replace it with a larger one.
*Units with hard drives include Seagate IronWolf Pro HDDs.
High-Speed Gigabit Connectivity
The Drobo 5N2 is equipped with two high-speed Gigabit Ethernet ports and connects directly to your network to make sharing your data easy. Just plug it into any switch or wireless router and you're ready to go. You can even connect the Drobo 5N2 directly to the Ethernet port on your computer without having to configure any settings. Ethernet ports can be bonded together to dramatically increase performance whilst also providing network failure resiliency.
SSD Acceleration Boosts Performance
Most storage arrays use either all hard drives or all SSDs. The Drobo 5N2 delivers the best of both worlds by intelligently combining hard drives and SSDs to deliver both capacity and performance. Using a small form-factor mSATA SSD (card included) boosts performance of popular applications. 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.
Do More with Popular Apps
Drobo offers dozens of popular applications that extend the capabilities of the Drobo 5N2. Whether you want to stream media or backup to the cloud, DroboApps have you covered. Popular apps include, DroboAccess for remote access and sharing, ElephantDrive for cloud backup, and Plex for media serving and Resilio Sync. Seamless integration with Drobo Dashboard makes using DroboApps as simple as checking a box.
Power Protecting Your Critical Data
Drobo doesn’t just protect your critical data from drive failure, but also from power outages. The Drobo 5N2 includes a battery that protects all data – whether active or at rest. Should the power go out while using your Drobo, the battery will protect everything until the power is restored. The battery recharges automatically and is designed to last for the entire life of the product.
The 5N2 has a feature called “Drobo DR” (DR = disaster recovery). You can set up a pair of 5N2s to automatically make an offsite copy of your data. This provides an easy to setup offsite backup of your important data. Even better, the remote 5N2 stores all user account information so that recovery is a breeze.
The myDrobo Platform
The myDrobo platform extends the functionality of Drobo NAS devices by providing a secure and fully end-to-end encrypted path to selected Drobo Apps.
The DroboAccess iOS and Android app allows Drobo NAS owners to access their data anywhere, anytime through a secure and encrypted network. This allows Drobo consumers and SMBs to quickly and easily setup their own private cloud storage solution with the ability to view documents from a web browser or from the DroboAccess mobile app.
The DroboPix iOS and Android app allows owners to easily and automatically upload their photos and videos from mobile devices to a networked Drobo. The files are automatically uploaded over Wi-Fi and are securely backed up and protected on a Drobo.

- Pretty device, aesthetics is definitely a priority at Drobo.
- Very fast if using all gigabit ethernet. A rough estimate of the transfer speed was approx 105 MB/s Read and Write using a single direct link via gigabit ethernet port to my computer. In theory this could be even higher if utilizing both ports in bonded mode, however I don't have the capability to max out both ports at this time.
- MacOS has not had any issues connecting the Drobo, so far smooth sailing.
- Drobo Dashboard works well, and setup is easy (almost too easy if you're a techie)
- All of the status, capacity, Drobo Apps, basic settings are easily accessible
- Recognizes the Drobo very quickly if you use a manual IP address, which really is proper setup for a server (this part is not for novices).
-DroboAccess works well for remote access. Recognize that it will be slow when transferring files over the internet, and it probably depends on your ISPs uplink speed more than the actual Drobo.
- Its surprisingly loud. It is only a hum (almost a droning noise) but make no mistake; its present.
- Even my wife said "Oh, thats Drobo! I thought there was a truck idling outside". Not lying, this actually happened, and yes it sounds like that.
-The noise is also for sure from the fan and not the hard drives, and the fan runs 24/7. All 3 HDs together are also quieter than the fan.
Overall a great device that is very reliable at this point and I do recommend it. Although I think that the fan issue is annoying and should have been addressed, it is not a deal breaker. The speed is great. If you have issues with speed, before crying hopelessly, you should verify that you do have gigabit ethernet on your computer and your router. If using wireless it will connect at the speed of your wireless connection (usually slow).
