Super-fast RAID-ready Storage Solution 8TB with dual Thunderbolt ports.
You can use each of the four internal drives independently, or use a software RAID solution of your choice to setup a multi-drive array for high-performance or data-redundancy.
With ThunderBay's performance capabilities you can complete projects faster, have more time to experiment, and push your creations to the next level. Enhance editing capabilities in video apps like Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Avid Media Composer. Empower greater audio production capabilities in audio apps like Avid Pro Tools and Logic Pro X. Edit large photos in apps like Adobe Photoshop, and browse large photo libraries in apps like Apple Aperture and Adobe Lightroom. Simply put, you can do more with a ThunderBay 4 enhanced workflow, and with a RAID 5 array you get data redundancy on top of great performance!
Each 8TB 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.
Built on OWC's time-tested enclosure cooling technology, ThunderBay utilises an open "flow-thru" vented design with an oversized 92 mm, low-turbulence, noise-quieting fan to keep the drives running cool and reliably.
