The Drobo 5N2 is purposely designed to minimise the impact of the BeyondRAID overhead. The new quad-core processor appears to be doing the trick, as sequential read and write performance is comparable to competing NAS solutions utilising more traditional RAID configurations.

Sequential throughput is solid, but the ARM-based processor has its limits and throughput plummets in the ultra-intensive 4K Q32 tests, where Intel-based NAS solutions continue to hold the upper hand.
