The 5C is a well priced 5 bay DAS from the US American manufacturer Drobo. On the inside there is a quad core SoC making sure there is enough processing power and apart from that there is a USB C interface for quick transfers. Drobo is keen on making their DAS as easy to use as possible. One key feature is the possibility to add disk drives of different sizes to an array.
As we already mentioned the 5C from Drobo is a DAS that has been optimized towards eas of use. Therefore you get a sleek looking product offering basic features from the hardware perspective. Apart from that there is Drobo's so called BeyondRAID feature and we're certainly going to have a closer look those goodies. Apparently we wil also have a look at performance, which used to be the achilles heel of Drobo's consumer offerings in the past.
