OWC ThunderBay 6 (Thunderbolt 3) 48TB Incl SoftRAID XT

When you work with large projects and tight deadlines, you do not want any delays in your workflow. The content you create, generally grows the more you work with it; and your equipment needs to keep up. OWC’s ThunderBay 6 offers an exceptional performance level to help you meet the demands of your most complex projects.

Whether you work with many small files, streaming or editing the latest 8K or VR footage, the ThunderBay 6 enables you to complete projects faster, giving you more time to create. With the dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and a DisplayPort, integrating a workstation has never been easier.

OWC’s ThunderBay 6 comes equipped with six bays for hot-swappable HDDs or SSDs – or a combination of the two – in a sturdy aluminum enclosure with an integrated power supply. Drives run quietly and are kept cool by a whisper-quiet fan.

To keep your workflow on the highest level, an extra slot has been added for an M.2 NVMe SSD to future-proof your storage needs.
