Professional Thunderbolt SSD Storage Solution and SoftRAID 5.
Experience the first and only software RAID 5 technology developed for the Mac with the ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Edition. The ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Edition delivers outstanding performance and reliability for the most demanding applications, including workflows involving 4K, 2K, uncompressed HD, and multi-stream SD video.
- Up to 1284 MB/s sustained RAID 0 performance
- Up to 978 MB/s read and 845 MB/s write sustained RAID 5 performance
- Preconfigured in RAID 5 for optimal data redundancy
- 75% faster rebuild times than hardware RAID
With RAID 5, the four drives inside ThunderBay 4 mini are merged for increased capacity and tremendous performance gains over a single drive. Special redundancy data, called "parity information," is also stored across the drives, allowing your data to remain completely safe so you can maintain your mission critical workflows worry-free.
Expand production capabilities for industry-leading creative platforms like Final Cut X, Avid Pro Tools, and Adobe Lightroom with this incredibly fast and portable 4-bay drive. With ThunderBay 4 mini, you can add up to four 2.5" hard drives, SSDs, or a mix of both to suit your performance needs. Utilise the drives independently, or use the software RAID configuration of your choice to achieve an optimal balance of storage, performance, and data-redundancy.
Each ThunderBay undergoes OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure prior to shipping. This ensures your ThunderBay arrives operating properly and ready for demanding use.
