When two bays clearly aren’t enough storage for your needs and eight bays feels a bit ambitious for now, enter the ThunderBay 4. This “just right” Goldilocks of storage solutions offers the space, speed, and flexibility you can use for both current and future needs. There’s a reason ThunderBay 4 is our most popular multi-bay RAID storage solution. You can use a variety of 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives for everyday digital file storage and backup all the way to running multi-stream compressed 4K video. With two Thunderbolt ports, it gives you the muscle to move all that content at up to 1527MB/s real-world throughput speed. And ThunderBay 4 is highly configurable to perfectly match your storage needs. You can use each drive independently, or in the SoftRAID XT configuration of your choice for the optimal balance of performance and data redundancy. Get the most out of your storage, take the brakes off your workflow, and do more with a ThunderBay 4.
Built on OWC's time-tested enclosure cooling technology, ThunderBay 4 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.
Workflow and Storage Solutions for Pros
Whether you’re finishing and mastering, creating proxies or working with state-of-the-art VFX and AR, you need dependable tech that keeps pace with your demands. OWC workflow and storage solutions cover every angle, delivering blazing speed, capacity for all five levels of RAID, and bonus features like the freedom to daisy chain and hot-swap.
Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBay 4s for massive storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBay 4s to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports to achieve exponential speed capabilities.
Gain a 4K Perspective
With a dedicated DisplayPort 1.2, ThunderBay 4 empowers you to add the fresh, crisp perspective of a 4K display to your workflow. Whether in your home office or on a mobile studio job, seeing your work in full detail is just one connection away. Use it to free up your laptop port so you can dock in and out quickly.
