OWC / Other World Computing OWCTB2SRE56.0S Overview

  • 1Description

This ThunderBay 4 56TB 4-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Array from OWC / Other World Computing is pre-configured with four 14TB Toshiba MG07ACA14TE Enterprise-grade drives set up in RAID 5 via SoftRAID XT software. With two Thunderbolt 2 ports featuring transfer speeds of up to 20 Gb/s, it's suitable for a wide variety of workflows such as video and photo editing, audio production, and much more. Actual read and write performance in RAID 5 are around 651 MB/s and 446 MB/s respectively. If needed, Thunderbolt 2 connectivity also supports daisy-chaining with up to six devices as well as DisplayPort-equipped displays. Using the SoftRAID XT software, you can reconfigure these drives from RAID 5 to alternate configurations including RAID 0, 1, 4, 1+0, and JBOD.

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 2 ports also support DisplayPort 1.2 that allows daisy-chaining displays through the drive.
