Product Information

Overview

OWC Mercury Pro U.2 Dual

The Mercury Pro U.2 Dual is ready for you to install two NVMe U.2 SSDs, so you can edit high-res files on the fly, ingest and duplicate dailies without a hitch, rip through the tightest of timelines, and backup huge music and photo libraries in a flash. While it offers blazingly fast performance with massive storage capacity, this compact solution is small enough to easily fit on a DIT cart, in a rack, or on your desktop.

Nearly 6x Faster SSD Performance

NVMe U.2 SSD use began in the corporate and server market, where ROI is defined in nanoseconds and dependability is paramount.

Dual drive bays house NVMe U.2 SSDs, ready for the RAID level of your choice, to tackle nearly any data need imaginable. From personal videos to major motion pictures, from photo shoots to file backups... the Mercury Pro U.2 Dual gives you necessary the capacity and horsepower get the job done.
