Unboxing Live 140: Drobo 5N NAS

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Networking, PC, Robots, Videocasts

The Drobo 5N is the latest network-attached storage device from the folks at Data Robotics. We are big Drobo fans at Gear Live, and we decided to move from the previous Drobo NAS, the Drobo FS, over to the newer Drobo 5N.

The 5N has 5 drive bays, allowing you to choose single or dual drive failure modes. This means that you can have either one or two drives completely fail, and still keep all of the data that is stored on the Drobo.

We open it up and give you a look. If you like wha tyou see, you can pick up your own Drobo 5N.
