OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual 'gen 2'

OWC today introduced the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual with Thunderbolt® 2 Technology. The new Mercury Elite Pro Dual – designed in Austin, TX by the OWC new product development team – offers speeds up to 474 MB/s, capacities up to 20TB, and RAID modes 0 and 1. A newly engineered aluminum enclosure features a larger, quieter fan and an advanced airflow design for drive health and longevity.

For professionals who need the additional performance of RAID 0 (two disks working together to create one very fast volume), or the peace of mind provided by RAID 1 (two disks mirrored to create instant redundancy), Mercury Elite Pro Dual with Thunderbolt 2 Technology packs serious connectivity in a versatile package.

“The Mercury Elite Pro Dual has long been a go-to solution for creative professionals who need flexibility without sacrificing performance,” said Larry O’Connor, CEO, OWC. “With the addition of Thunderbolt 2 Technology and a new, cooler, quieter design, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual is built to handle demanding workflows, providing peace of mind so you can focus on creating your next masterpiece.”

Configurable in RAID 0, 1, span, or independent modes via an easy-to-use selector switch, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual is ideal for creative professionals who need fast access to their data with an option for redundancy.
