How mutch more Speed whit SSD diske?
I have now a mSata SSD EVO 120GB installet, ande 3x3TB disk and 1 500GB SSD.

I have in mind to take 2 3TB out, and replace them whit SSD disk, to get more speed.

Anyone know how much more speed i will get?

Right now my Blackmagic test says approximately:
WRITE: 230MB/s
READ: 270MB/s

Yes you would get more speed, IOPS, but not MUCH more.
Read amazon.com reviews for drobo. you'll find there user results and official drobo comments.
Drobo agrees that this device(5n, mini included) is not about speed, it's about reliability and flexibility.
Controller is the bottleneck...
If you have mSATA accelerator then "hot data" will be accessed same as SSD,
but writes have no use for this. Pitty, i know.

So in summary, i wouldn't go with SSDs if i were you Wink

Depends on how you are using your Drobo. For a photo album? Lightroom or iPhoto/Photos?

Large contiguous files?

The mSATA drive will help with the numerous small files, not so much with the large files.

i7 Mac Mini Server, 10.10
Drobo (Gen2), USB, 4x WD 4TB RED

Drobo (Gen3), USB3, 4X WD 4TB RED

Drobo 5D, TB, 5x WD 4TB RED, 120GB Intel 525 mSATA SSD
