OWC Thunderbay 4: Now up to 40TB Capacity
It had slipped by my radar, but I just notice that OWC now offers the OWC Thunderbay 4 in capacities up to a whopping 40TB. The 40TB model uses Seagate Enterprise hard drives.
In RAID-5 or RAID-4 mode, the capacity of of 1 of the 4 drives in the Thunderbay 4 is used for parity information for fault tolerance, so 40TB becomes 30TB of usable capacity (but with fault tolerance). Still, 30 TB is a lot of space.
MPG has been using five Thunderbay 4 units for a couple of years now (see review of the Thunderbay 4 and review of the Thunderbay 4 mini). The Thunderbay 4 units just run and run without a hitch.
