OWC announces the availability of its ThunderBay 6 desktop storage solution, the newest addition to their ThunderBay line of external storage systems. Built for speed and security, and providing Thunderbolt 3 technology and massive storage, the ThunderBay 6 is designed for production companies, editors and photographers utilizing substantial amounts of storage for their projects.
Featuring six bays in its array for 2.5” and 3.5”drives, the ThunderBay 6 can be populated with drives from 24TB up to 72TB. Flexible storage space can be added with an optional M.2 NVMe SSD in addition to the six bays. It has a 3mm thick enclosure with jam-free lockable front door, as well as a low RPM fan to manage cooling and specialized non-skid drive feet to reduce vibration and noise. Add even more storage by linking up to six ThunderBay units together for massive storage options.
ThunderBay 6 manages and protects data with OWC’s advanced SoftRAID engine. With multiple RAID options (0, 1, 4, 5, 1+0 (10)), users can set it up for speed, data security or the best of both worlds.
