Product Overview

Stay Ahead of Your Storage Needs

This latest addition to the popular ThunderBay line, introduced in 2014, now offers eight drive bays for either 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs in any combination for up to 160TB of capacity. The ThunderBay 8 is like a high-performance personal data center that offers multiple configuration options to suit ever-expanding storage needs. Photo, film and video editors can take advantage of the largest capacity desktop RAID storage solution we’ve ever offered to handle the voracious drive space appetite of RAW, 4K, large format, and VR workflows.


Monstrous Capacity

Need even more capacity? Daisy-chain up to six of these capacity behemoths together for up to a staggering 960TB. Now you can capture vast amounts of footage from multiple cameras or store vast libraries of production work with a unified and reliable storage solution.


Conquer High-bandwidth Demands

With up to 2,586MB/s real-world tested speeds and the ability to RAID together eight SSDs or HDDs, ThunderBay 8 has the under-the-hood horsepower needed to conquer high-bandwidth requirements. Plus, its rugged, field-tested aluminum design stands up to studio and on-location workflows. You can even configure multiple ThunderBay 8 solutions connected via multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports on your Mac or PC to achieve exponential speed increases. Take on multi-stream 4K workflows. Export and render footage with effects at full speed. Whatever your set up, when you’re racing against a deadline, ThunderBay 8 puts you in the winner’s circle.


Easy and Complete Drive Management

Now you can maximise disk space, get the fastest access speeds, and protect against disk failure with Plug and Play simplicity. SoftRAID’s easy setup makes it a breeze to create RAID volumes by helping you through the entire process. Just decide what you’re using your RAID volume for and how much space to allocate to it. It's that simple to create your preference of speed and/or redundancy attributes of your data volume.


Swap and Identify Drives Easily

ThunderBay 8 makes it easy to keep large data sets organised for every project thanks to its eight hot swappable drive bays. Whether you’re using 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch HDDs and/or SSDs, the drives mount in alphabetically labeled trays for easy identification and are secured by a thumb screw. If you want to access a collection of drives quickly, you can create a drive “bullpen” with additional OWC drive trays (sold separately).


As Secure as A Bank Vault

With a locking front panel and security slot on the backside, the ThunderBay 8 is like an ironclad vault for your data. Plus, with front-panel LEDs indicating the status of each drive, you’ll know at a glance if your data is safe and secure.


See More, Do More

ThunderBay 8 isn’t just about high-capacity, high-performance storage. It’s about giving you all the options you need to work at your best. Attach a 5K Thunderbolt display or two 4K displays. Place a USB-C device at the end of a daisy chain. With an extra Thunderbolt 3 port, you have the flexibility to add more devices to your workflow and master any task at hand.


Stabilise Thunderbolt and USB-C Cables

Greatly reduce — if not eliminate — cable strain and accidental disconnects with the OWC ClingOn. These custom cable stabilisers (sold separately) screw into the enclosure to secure your Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connections to prevent work session interruption and possible data loss.


Professional Grade, Ready to Work

We understand having confidence in gear reliability is paramount to creative professionals. That’s why every ThunderBay 8 undergoes OWC's multi-hour "burn-in" performance certification prior to shipping. This ensures your ThunderBay 8 arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.
