Questions about this product?
  • 4 x 6TB 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" HDDs
  • 4 x 3.5"/2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s Drive Bays
  • Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) Interface
  • RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 1+0, and JBOD

The Other World Computing (OWC) - ThunderBay 4 24TB 4-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID 0 Array features dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, which utilize the USB Type-C connector. There is also a DisplayPort 1.2 port for connecting up to a 4K display.

The ThunderBay 4 has four drive bays, which supports both 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives (2.5" HDDs do not need adapters). This particular ThunderBay 4 model comes with four 6TBTB 3.5" 7200 rpm drives for a total of 24TB storage capacity. The included drives are configured in RAID 0. RAID 0 stripes all the drives in the array together so a RAID 0's read and write speeds will be nearly as fast as the combined speed of all the drives in it. Please note that RAID 0 does not offer data redundancy. If you want that, you can use the included SoftRAID Lite software to format the ThunderBay 4 to RAID 1, with an option to upgrade to support RAID 5 and 1+0.

Key Features

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

RAID & JBOD Support

The ThunderBay 4 comes pre-configured in RAID 0, but also supports RAID 1, 4, 5, 1+0, and JBOD.

Time-Tested Cooling

Built on OWC's time-tested enclosure cooling technology, the Thunderbay 4 utilizes an open "flow-thru" vented design with an over-sized 92mm, low turbulence, noise-quieting fan to keep the drives running cool and reliably.

Multi-Drive

Daisy-chain up to six ThunderBay 4s for more storage capabilities and increased performance, or connect multiple ThunderBay 4s to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports to achieve higher speed capabilities.

Vibration Dampened

The 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

The ThunderBay 4 comes with a certified OWC Thunderbolt 3 cable.
