OWC UNVEILS NEW ADDITIONS TO THUNDERBAY PRO-GRADE STORAGE LINEUP AT CES 2020: THUNDERBAY 8 AND FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND THUNDERBAY FLEX 8

CES 2020, LAS VEGAS — January 5, 2020 — OWC®; a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company and one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of hard drives, SSDs, Mac & PC docking solutions and performance upgrade kits, today announced two new massively powerful additions to its industry-leading ThunderBay product family – the ThunderBay 8 and the all-new ThunderBay FLEX 8.

ThunderBay 8

The ThunderBay 8 is a professional-grade 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 storage solution for pros who refuse to compromise. Think of it like a high-performance personal data center offering a multitude of configuration possibilities and almost limitless storage capacity for filmmakers, video production gurus, photographers, graphic designers and small business workgroups. With 8 hot swappable drive bays, OWC ThunderBay 8 offers massive professional-grade storage capacity in a Thunderbolt 3 desktop-sized design. Mix 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch HDDs and/or SSDs in any combination up to 112TB of capacity and use them independently or match drives and combine them in a speed and/or redundant RAID with the included SoftRAID setup and management software.

Monstrous Capacity, Monstrous Bandwidth

Need even more capacity? Daisy-chain up to 6 of these storage behemoths together for up to a staggering 672TB to create your own custom, one-of-a-kind data center. With real-world tested speed up to 2586MB/s via Thunderbolt 3 and the ability to SoftRAID together 8 SSDs or HDDs, ThunderBay 8’s rugged, field-tested aluminum design has the under-the-hood horsepower needed to conquer high bandwidth requirements. You can even connect multiple ThunderBay 8 solutions to multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports on your Mac or PC to achieve exponential speed increases.

Highlights

  • Pro-grade transfer speeds – up to 2586MB/s of real-world tested speed via with Thunderbolt 3 port (Thunderbolt 2/Thunderbolt backward compatible)
  • Massive capacity – store up to 112TB of critical footage, images, and files
  • Create a data center – daisy chain 6 units together for up to 672TB of storage capacity
  • 8 hot-swappable universal drive bays – mix or match 2.5-inch (no adaptor needed) and 3.5-inch HDDs and SSDs SoftRAID – robust software for creating, monitoring, and managing advanced RAID sets
  • See your work: DisplayPort 1.2 for connecting up to 4K monitor Daisy-chain expansion: Second Thunderbolt 3 port for adding up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices
  • Deployment ready – pre-configured solutions undergo rigorous multi-hour drive burn-in
  • Hardware Plug-and-Play – no drivers needed; includes Thunderbolt 3 cable
  • OWC ClingOn-ready: cable stabilizer prevents work session interruption and possible data loss
  • Worry-free – up to 5-Year OWC Limited Warranty with 1-Year Level 1 data recovery
