OWC ThunderBay 8: Speed vs Transfer size, RAID-0 vs Fault Tolerant RAID-5

The OWC ThunderBay 8 is available in configurations up to 128TB (8 X 16TB).

See my in-depth review of the OWC ThunderBay 8—awesome unit!

Added is an evaluation of RAID-0 Stripe vs fault-tolerant RAID-5:

OWC ThunderBay 8: Speed vs Transfer size, RAID-0 vs RAID-5

RAID-5 offers outstanding performance for reads, and very good performance for writes. Since reads are generally far more common, the practical implication is that RAID-5 performance in the OWC Thunderbay 8 is outstanding for most all uses with the benefit of fault tolerance. The speed difference vs RAID-0 will be of nil consequene with most all applications. Besides, running an 8-drive RAID-0 stripe is unwise, due to the risk of losing the entire volume from a drive failure.
