Product Information

Overview

All New Design for Power and Performance.

ThunderBay 4, OWC's flagship 4-bay RAID ready powerhouse is bigger and faster than ever before. Now with the unbelievable performance of Thunderbolt 3 — up to 1527MB/s sustained performance— it's the ultimate workhorse external storage solution.

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. Add vast amounts of high-performance storage with ThunderBay 4.

Utilize each of the four internal drives independently, or use the software RAID of your choice to setup a multi-drive array for high performance or data redundancy.

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.

Time-Tested Cooling: Built on OWC's time-tested enclosure cooling technology, ThunderBay 4 utilises an open "flow-thru" vented design with an oversized 92 mm, low-turbulence, noise-quieting fan to keep the drives running cool and reliably.

Multi-Drive: Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBay 4s for massive storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBay 4s to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports to achieve exponential speed capabilities.

Vibration Dampened: ThunderBay 4's drive isolating design reduces sonic resonance, and is aided by over-sized, rugged, vibration-absorbing, non-skid feet.

DisplayPort 1.2 Support: Dual Thunderbolt ports let you connect the display of your choice that your computer can support, including 4K displays.

OWC Thunderbolt Cable: ThunderBay 4 comes with a certified OWC Thunderbolt 3 cable, with other lengths from 0.5 meter to 2.0 meters available separately.

Highly configurable to perfectly match your performance needs. 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.

Buyers note: RAID 4/5/1+0 (10) are currently Mac only. Only RAID 0 and RAID 1 are supported by Windows 10/PC.
