The Drobo 20TB (5x4TB) Drobo 5D Kit from B&H delivers an expandable solution for creative professions and small businesses in need of high performance backup storage.
If you haven't heard of the Drobo, you're probably not being as productive as you could be. The Drobo 5D is one of the easiest to use, simplest to maintain, and most effective enclosure bays in its field of data storage. The Drobo 5D offers room for the five included 3.5" SATA drives and one mSATA solid state drive (sold separately). It handles drives from any manufacturer, at any capacity, spindle speed, and cache. You can add drives on the go - hot-swapping drives is not a problem for the Drobo 5D.
But what puts this unit ahead in the storage game are the dual Thunderbolt ports. We've talked about Thunderbolt before - it's 25 x faster than USB 2.0 - and its data transfer rates almost approach warp speed, but more importantly, for disk arrays of this size, it reliably and safely transfers big-project data across multiple disks. Imagine having to put a crucial 200GB file on a USB 2.0 drive, as you're late for an important meeting and running out the door. You'll be delayed for ten minutes or more, trust us. The same crucial information on a Thunderbolt attached drive - 20 seconds.
5 x HGST 4TB Deskstar 3.5" SATA III Internal Desktop Hard Drive

The hard disk drive with this kit holds a huge capacity of 4TB and fits into your computer's 3.5" drive bay. It features a SATA III interface that can deliver enhanced data transfer speeds. Because this HDD uses a ramp load/unload design that eliminates direct contact between the read/write heads and the disk platter, the risk of shock damage is minimized. This design also improves the drive's reliability and power efficiency.
