The G-Technology 8TB G-RAID 2-Bay Thunderbolt 2 USB 3.0 RAID Array Drive used to add the speed and storage capabilities of RAID, Thunderbolt 2, and USB 3.0 to your Mac and Windows system. This array features 2 x SATA III 6 Gb/s drive bays, each of which holds one removable 4TB enterprise-class hard drive, for a total capacity of 8TB. Each drive also has a rotational speed of 7200 rpm and a data transfer rate of up to 440 MB/s. While this G-RAID is built with 2 x Thunderbolt 2 and 1 x USB 3.0 interfaces, it is also compatible with Thunderbolt and USB 2.0 technology.
This G-RAID features an internal RAID controller which supports hardware RAID 0 (optimized for performance), RAID 1 (optimized for data protection), or JBOD. This will allow users to access, browse, edit, and backup their digital library. It is well suited for demanding creative projects, such as those involving HD, 2K, and compressed 4K workflows. In addition, it may also be used for storage-intensive applications, such as audio editing, digital photography, music libraries, data backup, and more. This array uses a smart cooling fan to help ensure quiet operation, a long life, and data reliability, as well as an all-aluminum enclosure to help increase its durability.
While this G-RAID is compatible with both Mac and Windows, it comes pre-formatted for Mac OS 10.7 and later. When reformatted for Windows, it is compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, and 7. Included with this storage array is one Thunderbolt cable, a USB 3.0 cable, a power cable, and an AC power adapter.
