OWC 8TB ThunderBay 4 with Dual Thunderbolt 2 Ports - RAID 5 Edition 4-Bay External Drive
Experience the first and only software RAID 5 technology developed for the Mac with the ThunderBay 4 RAID 5 Edition. Empower your workflow with up to 35% faster RAID 5 performance and exponentially faster rebuild times than comparable hardware based RAID arrays.
- Up to 1010MB/s read / 755MB/s write RAID 5 performance.
- Up to 1348MB/s read / 1314MB/s write RAID 0 performance.
- Exponentially faster rebuild times than hardware RAID.
Install the included SoftRAID for OS X to bring enhanced storage capabilities to the Mac. SoftRAID combines advanced RAID modes, fast performance, monitoring, e-mail notification, and fast rebuild capabilities that only software RAID can deliver.
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. ThunderBay comes with an OWC one-meter certified Thunderbolt cable.
Built on OWC's time-tested enclosure cooling technology, ThunderBay utilizes an open "flow-thru" vented design with an oversized 92 mm, low-turbulence, noise-quieting fan to keep the drives running cool and reliably.
Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBays for massive storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBays to multiple Thunderbolt 2 ports to achieve exponential speed capabilities.
ThunderBay's drive isolating design reduces sonic resonance, and is aided by over-sized, rugged, vibration-absorbing, non-skid feet.
