The 16TB OWC ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Four-Drive HDD External Thunderbolt 3 Storage Solution is perfect for repurposing or maximizing 2.5-inch SSDs for a compact data storage solution. It’s big on performance and flexibility, yet ThunderBay 4 mini is about the length of a pencil and weighs only 3.1 pounds with SSDs. The rugged heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure features two Thunderbolt 3 (Thunderbolt 2/Thunderbolt backward compatible)for up to 1556MB/s speeds, so you have more than enough bandwidth to handle personal and business backups — all the way up to today's highest resolution audio, photo, and video formats. If you are seeking big RAID performance that's small enough to fit on a desk, in a rack, or on a DIT cart, your wish is now a reality.

With four drive bays, you can mix or match different brands and capacity 2.5-inch SSDs and HDDs. Use mixed drives independently or combine drives as a RAID with the included SoftRAID setup and management software. Available in a variety of pre-configured capacity solutions to achieve your desired balance of storage, performance, and data redundancy.

Whatever the day or project demands, the ThunderBay 4 mini is the perfect workflow solution.

Want to access another drive or expand your storage capacity? Simply open the front panel security lock to access the four individual bays. Drives mount to a tray that slides back in and automatically plugs into a drive connector so you can get back to work in minutes.
