The RAID 5 Advantage
With RAID 5, the four drives inside ThunderBay 4 mini are merged for increased capacity and tremendous performance gains over a single drive. Special redundancy data, called “parity information,” is also stored across the drives, allowing your data to remain completely safe so you can maintain your mission critical workflows worry-free.
Thinking Outside the Enclosure
OWC unlocks the incredible performance and flexibility of ThunderBay by pairing the drives with a robust software RAID solution. Powered by the SoftRAID engine, ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Edition delivers advanced RAID modes, real-time health monitoring with email notifications, and best-in-class rebuild speeds. Unlike traditional software RAID solutions, SoftRAID 5 for ThunderBay’s revolutionary volume optimization allows you to quickly configure your drive for specific workflows. Now, you can experience the absolute best performance whether recording audio, editing 4K video, or creating a multimedia server.
Flexible and Robust
Take full advantage of the flexibility offered by the ThunderBay 4 mini and SoftRAID engine. Easily build and reconfigure complex RAID arrays, or connect multiple ThunderBays to create even larger RAIDs with up to 16 drives for optimal performance and redundancy. Now, users can enjoy robust RAID options with near enterprise-grade storage and performance for a fraction of the cost.
4 drive bays plus so much more.
