Note on Drive Performance:
For optimal performance, it’s best not to mix drives that have different rotational speeds (RPM). Faster spinning drives will maximize total system performance. Leveraging SSD technology for caching, tiering or as primary storage will provide the best performance when deployed as recommended.
* Seagate ‘Enterprise Capacity’ drives are not recommended since some models have high peak power requirements that may overload the Drobo power supply.
– For more information regarding drive compatability see: Can I really use any hard drive I want in Drobo?
– Seagate Archive drives are currently not supported.
– HGST Ultrastar Archive Ha10 10TB drive is not compatible for use with Drobo.
