Boost your storage capacity with the 8TB ThunderBay 4 RAID Four-Drive SSD with Dual Thunderbolt 3 Ports from OWC. Equipped with four 2TB solid-state drives, this four-bay external storage system boasts read/write speeds up to 1,154 MB/s. ThunderBay 4 comes equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a DisplayPort 1.2 port, ideal for daisy-chaining multiple Thunderbolt 3 devices or handling multi-stream compressed 4K video.

Software RAID Support

Use each drive independently or in the RAID configuration of your choice for the optimal balance of performance and data-redundancy. This ThunderBay 4 model is preconfigured in RAID 4 mode using SoftRAID for macOS. Setting up a RAID volume for Windows requires the use of the Disk Management application.

Monitoring & Notifications

Drive monitoring and e-mail notifications keep you informed about your ThunderBay's performance and drive health, helping you to maintain mission-critical workflows.

Certified and Tested

Each ThunderBay 4 undergoes OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure prior to shipping. This helps to ensure your ThunderBay 4 arrives operating properly, ready for demanding use.

Cooling Features

Housed in a heat-dissipating aluminum chassis, ThunderBay 4 utilizes an open "flow-thru" vented design with an oversized 92mm, low-turbulence, noise-quieting fan designed to keep the drives running cool and reliably.

Multi-Drive

Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBay 4 storage devices for massive storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBay 4 systems to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports to help boost speed capabilities.

Vibration Dampened

ThunderBay 4's drive-isolating design helps to reduces sonic resonance, and is aided by oversized, rugged, vibration-absorbing, non-skid feet.

Thunderbolt 3 Support

Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports let you connect the supported display of your choice, including 4K displays.

OWC Thunderbolt Cable

ThunderBay 4 comes with a certified OWC Thunderbolt 3 cable.

Hardware Requirements

Mac or Windows PC with a Thunderbolt 3 interface. Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 compatibility requires a certified Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) to Thunderbolt 2 (mDP) adapter and a Thunderbolt 2 cable. Compatibility will be at Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 speeds.
