OWC ThunderBay 4 Mini RAID DIY Enclosure with SoftRAID XT
Big RAID System Performance in a Compact Design
With four 2.5-inch drive bays, ThunderBay 4 mini transforms SSDs and HDDs into a pro-grade, Thunderbolt 3 storage solution in a compact design. The rugged heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure features two Thunderbolt 3 ports for up to 1556 MB/s speeds, so you can breeze through personal and business backups all the way up to today’s highest resolution audio, photo, and video formats.
Expand production capabilities in industry-leading creative platforms like Final Cut X, Avid Pro Tools, Apple Pro Logic, and Adobe Lightroom, edit large images, manage massive photo and audio libraries, store drone videos, use it as a transport drive…whatever the day or project demands, the ThunderBay 4 mini is the perfect workflow solution.
Store More, See More, Do More
With the ability to daisy-chain you can add up to five additional ThunderBay 4 mini solutions to create massive storage capacities. Merge them with SoftRAID for even more flexibility, capacity, and capability. Or if speed is what you’re after, connect multiple ThunderBay 4 mini solutions to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports on your Mac or PC to achieve exponential speed capabilities.
Beyond storage, the sky is the limit for what you can connect. Attach a 5K Thunderbolt display or two 4K displays. Place a USB 3.1 device at the end of the chain. With an extra Thunderbolt 3 port, you have the flexibility to add to your daisy-chain and master any task at hand.
