The OWC 16TB ThunderBay 4 mini 4-Drive SSD Thunderbolt 3 RAID 5 Array is equipped with four 2.5-inch drive bays that allow the ThunderBay 4 mini to transform SSDs and HDDs into a pro-grade, Thunderbolt 3 storage solution in a compact design. Equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, the ThunderBay 4 mini supports transfer speeds up to 1556 MB/s when using RAID 0, allowing for quicker backups or daisy-chaining multiple arrays for extended storage.

The ThunderBay 4 mini 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.

With the ability to daisy-chain you can add up to five additional ThunderBay 4 mini solutions to create massive storage capacities. Merge them with SoftRAID for even more flexibility, capacity, and capability. Or if speed is what you’re after, connect multiple ThunderBay 4 mini solutions to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports on your Mac or PC to achieve exponential speed capabilities. Beyond storage, the sky is the limit for what you can connect. Attach a 5K Thunderbolt display or two 4K displays. Place a USB 3.1 device at the end of the chain. With an extra Thunderbolt 3 port, you have the flexibility to add to your daisy chain and master any task at hand.
