Thanks again everyone, for your patience, ongoing interest, and support. The Drobo 5D is here and ready to begin shipping – and I think you’re going to love it. First of all, it’s a Drobo – with the same ease-of-use, flexibility, and expandability that are synonymous with what we do.
Secondly, it’s fast. Really fast. Between 4x – 12x faster than previous Drobo generations. And it’s not just Thunderbolt and USB 3.0. Our new ability to utilize SSDs in addition to hard drives really gives us a unique boost, without sacrificing the capacity you need. Check out a live demo if you want to see it in action.
Thirdly, we’ve added more reliability features than ever before. For example, our new hibernation and battery backup capabilities (which you won’t find on anything in this price category). We’re going to keep innovating here too.
What does all this mean to you? Especially for the media creator, users will not have to sacrifice protection of their assets in order to get the performance they want. Drobo delivers both, with unprecedented levels of I/O performance that make video editing and working with photo libraries faster while also providing the best in protection.
Thanks again for your support – we’re very proud of the new Drobo 5D and Mini and we’re singularly committed to delivering the best data protection solutions for you. Let me know what you think. As always, I’m more than happy to listen, talk, or chat – email@example.com, or 408-276-8621.
