The Thunder2 Duo Pro from Akitio is a dual-bay storage enclosure that supports 3.5" and 2.5" drives in a tool-less installation ranging in capacity from 80GB - 8TB. The Thunder2 Duo Pro is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports with bi-directional speeds up to 20 Gb/s, one USB 3.0 port with speeds up to 5 Gb/s, and one HDMI 1.4b port with speeds up to 3 Gb/s. While one Thunderbolt 2 port is used the connect to your system, the other one can be used to daisy chain up to five devices to your system. The Thunderbolt 2 ports are also DisplayPort 1.2 compatible, which allows for video streaming to a single 4K display. Additionally, the HDMI 1.4b port will allow you to add a second 4K display to your system, provided that your primary display is already 4K.

Whether you are a photo or video professional or just someone who requires Thunderbolt storage, the Thunder2 Duo Pro supports RAID 0 (striping), 1 (redundancy), SPAN (disk spanning for large storage capacities), and non-RAID (independent volumes) configurations. The Thunder2 Duo Pro supports Windows and Mac operating systems and includes a 3.3' / 1.0m Thunderbolt cable, a 3.3' / 1.0m USB 3.0 cable, and a power adapter.

Please bear in mind that this Thunderbolt product is not compatible with Apple's Boot Camp. Also, in order for your computer to access volumes larger than 2TB, it must be running Windows Vista, 7, or Mac OS 10.4 and above and be updated. Lastly, the Thunderbolt cable is not included with all models or in all regions.

High-Speed I/O Performance and Dual Interfaces
By incorporating the Thunderbolt 2 interface, Akitio's Thunder2 Duo Pro is ready to deliver fast throughput performance. For systems without Thunderbolt connectivity, the USB 3.0 interface guarantees flexibility and compatibility
Dual Thunderbolt Ports and HDMI Output
The second Thunderbolt 2 port lets you daisy chain up to five Thunderbolt devices together. You can attach additional external drives and even a display, all connected to your computer through a single cable. With the dedicated HDMI 1.4b connector, you can easily connect your 4K display without the need for an additional adapter
4K Workflow with Thunderbolt 2 Technology
Thunderbolt 2 technology incorporates DisplayPort 1.2 support, which allows for video streaming to a single 4K video monitor. With the dedicated HDMI 1.4b connector, you can even add a second display, assuming that the first display is a Thunderbolt display
Hardware RAID Controller
This storage enclosure is designed to house up to two SATA drives, either the smaller 2.5" or the larger 3.5" drives. With the built-in hardware RAID controller you can mirror the drives with RAID 1 as a reliable backup for your important data, you can stripe the drives with RAID 0 for improved performance and speed, or you can select SPAN to combine the drives for large storage capacities. Even individually, the SATA III 6 Gb/s interface allows each drive to run at full SATA III speeds. In case of a drive failure, the tool-less design makes installing and replacing the drives quick and easy
