Other World Computing (OWC) has announced the release of its ThunderBay 4 mini and ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Edition, which builds on the established second-gen ThunderBay 4. OWC says the new products allow a user to transport data between production environments. This portable, professional-grade Thunderbolt 2 RAID solution is optimized for 2.5-inch drives and is designed for workflows involving 4K, 2K, uncompressed HD and multi-stream SD video.
Key features include four 2.5-inch drive bays, perfect for SSDs; Thunderbolt 2 performance with sustained speeds of up to 1,284 MBps; RAID-ready with up to 4 TB of SSD storage (HDD up to 8 TB); near-silent operation; SoftRAID 5 software RAID 5 for the Mac (available with ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Edition); the flexibility to combine multiple ThunderBays into a single massive RAID array; and regimented multi-hour drive “burn-in” for reliability.
