The OWC Gemini Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Dock and Dual-Drive RAID Enclosure is designed with two SATA III drive bays that can accommodate 3.5" hard drives, 2.5" hard drives, and SSDs. This dock will not only help you keep your digital archives organized, but it also has the capacity to help render / process effects and duplicate footage. The Gemini Thunderbolt 3 Dock and Dual-Drive RAID Enclosure by OWC includes two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports (with up to 27W of power), two 5 Gb/s USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one Display Port, one Gigabit Ethernet port, and a UHS-11 SD card reader. The OWC Gemini Thunderbolt 3 Dock and Dual-Drive RAID Enclosure requires a Thunderbolt 3 host connection.
Additionally, this dock supports RAID configurations of RAID 0 - which provides performance but no data redundancy, and RAID 1, which provides data redundancy at the cost of performance.
Please note that this device must be connected to your host system using Thunderbolt 3 and cannot be used as a NAS. The Ethernet port provides the computer with a network connection over Thunderbolt 3, but cannot be used to access data on the drives over the network.
Configure to Your Unique Needs
You can customize the Gemini to quickly adapt to project changes and help you stay ahead of deadlines. Install your choice of 2.5" or 3.5" HDDs or SSDs, and even combine the speed of a SSD and with the cost-effective storage capacity of a HDD. With a built-in hardware RAID, you have four drive set-up choices:
Non-RAID (JBOD) to keep the drives as independent volumes
RAID 1 (mirror) for backup reliability
RAID 0 (stripe) for optimal performance and maximum speed or use
Span to combine the drive capacities into one huge volume for extra-large storage capacities
Full Stream Ahead
The Gemini features a 1Gb Ethernet port to keep you connected at speeds that leave Wi-Fi in the dust. A must-have for shared workflows and workspaces, Ethernet connectivity speeds up file transfers giving you an edge on your work in progress.
Professional Grade = Ready to Work
OWC understands having confidence in gear reliability is paramount to creative professionals. That's why every Gemini configured solution undergoes OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure prior to shipping. This helps ensure it arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.

Available from OWC as a free download, their Dock Ejector software safely disconnects drives in a single click. Designed by OWC hardware and software engineers, Dock Ejector ensures all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss.
