re: TESTED: Western Digital 18TB Ultrastar DC HC550 hard drive in OWC Mercury Elite Pro USB 3.2 enclosure
With four OWC Thunderbay 4 units I have plenty of backup storage, but these are rather bulky and heavy for my Sprinter van on my photography trips.
The up-to 18TB OWC Mercury Elite Pro solves the storage capacity issue for most people.
But what if you need more portable storage and/or more performance or data safety via fault tolerance?
Enter the up-to 36TB OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual USB-C enclosure with 3-port hub.

A key advantage of the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual is hardware RAID: no special software needed. Use two drives independently, or RAID-0 stripe for performance, or RAID-1 mirror for fault tolerance.
Two independent drives could serve separate purposes, or one could be a clone backup of the other. Striping gets you double the speed and double the capacity. Or mirroring protects you against failure of one drive.
