16.0TB ThunderBay 4 RAID5 Edition with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and softRAID5
Not only faster, the new ThunderBay 4 Thunderbolt 3 is now natively compatible with both 2.5" and 3.5" drives, and with a redesigned chassis, it's even cooler and quieter too.
Designed with performance in mind and engineered to harness the power of Thunderbolt 3, ThunderBay 4 is an incredibly flexible external solution with the throughput to support multi-stream compressed 4K video and other bandwidth-intensive operations.
ThunderBay 4 is highly configurable to perfectly match your performance needs. Choose between traditional hard drives or Solid State Drives. Use each drive independently, or in the RAID configuration of your choice for the optimal balance of performance and data-redundancy. Get the most out of your storage, take the brakes off your workflow, and do more with a ThunderBay 4.
Experience the most advanced software RAID available with the ThunderBay 4 RAID Edition. Empower your workflow with up to 35% faster RAID performance and exponentially faster rebuild times than comparable hardware RAID arrays. SoftRAID combines the advanced RAID modes, superior performance, comprehensive, real-time disk monitoring, e-mail notification, and fast rebuild capabilities that only software RAID can deliver.
