Simply put, you can do more with a ThunderBay 4 enhanced workflow, and with a RAID 5 array you get data redundancy on top of great performance!

Certified and Tested
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.

 

Monitoring + Notifications
Software RAID easily lets you setup drive monitoring and e-mail notifications to keep you informed about your ThunderBay’s performance and drive health. Helping you to maintain mission critical workflows.
 
Better than Hardware RAID Performance
ThunderBay 4 with SoftRAID offers faster performance than many competing 4 or even 5-bay hardware RAID external drives – benefiting from modern processors that are both fast and designed for exceptionally high-performance RAID management with no real-world impact on apps or tasks.
 
Flexible + Robust
SoftRAID is extremely flexible and can easily be updated, reconfigured and used across multiple enclosures to provide an amazing amount of robust options to empower you to make the most of your ThunderBay workflow.
 
Backed by OWC
Should you ever have a question or troubleshooting need, you can rely on OWC’s award-winning U.S. based support for both the ThunderBay 4 drive and SoftRAID software.
