    G-Raid or Drobo?

    Hello,

    I know Avid's are the most recommended storage but while the budget is tight, we're sticking with other brands.

    What do you think about G-Raid and Drobo?

    Which one do you recommend?

    We're currently using G-Raid 1 (500s).

     

    Thank you.

    They are not quite the same thing, or at least their intended purpose. G-RAID are meant to give you the best performance at a given price level. Drobo is meant to give you a versatile and affordable backup system. Feedback I have read (Avid-L2) is that the Drobo is quite slow. For editing, G-RAID is the way to go (or similar products). Drobo is a nice way to backup your media.

    Don't use drobo for editing. And on the other side, G-Raids are made, basically, for editing.

     

    Please know that the "raid" in G-Raid, is a raid 0. If you lose one drive, you've lost them both. Perhaps a G-Drive would be better and safer, if you're not doing high res work.

    Don't trust the internet...
