The Drobo 5N2 offers an unparalleled user experience for secure back-up, disaster recovery, and data sharing. With 5 bays the Drobo combines the storage capacity of up to 5 HDDs into a central location, while allowing rapid access to your files via bonded dual Ethernet ports. The 5N2 utilises Drobo’s BeyondRAID technology for added security, as its intelligent system ensures secure file storage.
Drobo’s award-winning BeyondRaid technology protects data against hard-drive failure. Switch from single to multiple drives in seconds using a single click for added protection, and the 5N2 will also remap the data if it detects an imminent hard-drive failure to protect against data loss. It will also attempt to self-heal, for an added layer of protection.
Next-generation data storage
Drobo’s innovative technologies offer enhanced protection, security, reliability, and expandability, taking the guess-work out of data storage for your company. The 5N2 features dual gigabit Ethernet ports that allow for either connection to 2 different subnets, or a bonded connection that provides read/write speeds twice as fast as a single connection. This also means that if one drive fails, the other will take over when used in the ‘active/passive’ mode.
When using 2 5N2s you can set it up so it automatically makes an off-site copy of your data, so if something were to happen to your primary drive, your data will be safe, thanks to Drobo’s seamless replication.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
