The ThunderBay 4 8TB (4 x 2TB) Four-Bay Thunderbolt RAID Array from OWC / Other World Computing comes with four hard drives preinstalled and connects to Mac systems via Thunderbolt. Behind the lockable front panel are four bays that each house a single 2TB hard drive. These drives feature 32MB of cache memory and spin at 7,200 rpm. Out of the box the drives work in JBOD mode where each drive is handled independently with its own drive letter. These drives can be software reconfigured in different RAID options that offer redundancy, speed, or a combination of both. RAID software is not included.

The ThunderBay 4 comes with two Thunderbolt 2 ports which allow you to daisy-chain up to six devices such as additional ThunderBays, 4K displays, and more. Thunderbolt 2 offers a single 20 Gb/s bi-directional channel that allows you to stream and write 4K video at the same time. To cool the hard drives, OWC uses a quiet 92mm fan. For service, OWC provides a 3-year warranty and also includes level 1 data recovery during the first year.

Cooling
ThunderBay utilizes an open "flow-thru" vented design with a 92mm, low-turbulence, noise-quieting fan to keep the drives running cool and reliably.
Multi-Drive
Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBays for massive storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBays to multiple Thunderbolt 2 ports to achieve exponential speed capabilities.
Vibration Dampened
ThunderBay's drive isolating design reduces sonic resonance, and is aided by over-sized, rugged, vibration-absorbing, non-skid feet.
DisplayPort 1.2 Support
The Thunderbolt ports also support DisplayPort 1.2 that allows daisy-chaining displays through the drive.
