Designed for modern 4K workflows and built using durable aluminum, the T4 32TB Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from CalDigit is an external RAID array that connects to your Mac system using one of its two Thunderbolt 3 ports. Its second Thunderbolt 3 port may be used to connect multiple 4K devices such as monitors, I/O devices, and additional RAID solutions. The T4 has a total capacity of 32TB, which is configured as 4 x 8TB drives. Additionally, the T4 is designed to accommodate both 3.5" and 2.5" hard drives and solid-state drives to maximize your storage options.
The T4 supports a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, and 5, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also supported. Additionally, the T4 has a Hybrid RAID mode, allowing users to combine the unit into a RAID 0 or 1 with a JBOD, as well as format two drive bays as a RAID 0 or 1 and use the other two drive bays in the same way.
The CalDigit T4 32TB Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array operates using 100-240 VAC at 2.0A and 50-60 Hz and offers up to 85W of output power to charge compatible devices like laptop computers. It includes four drive modules, an AC adapter, an AC power cord, and two keys. The unit is also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 10 Gb/s and is protected by a limited 5-year warranty, while the drives are protected by a limited 3-year warranty.
RAID 5 (Parity Striped
Users that require a combination of performance and protection should opt for RAID 5. RAID 5 offers single drive redundancy along with the performance of a striped set. In the event of a single drive failure, the data will remain intact and accessible, allowing the failed drive to be replaced
RAID 0 (Striped)
RAID 0 is designed for users that require maximum performance from their RAID array. A backup is highly recommended since RAID 0 does not offer any protection
RAID 1 is ideal for those who require a backup solution. Any data written to the RAID will be copied onto each of the four drives, resulting in four copies of the data
