AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad Mini (Enclosure Only) is four-bay thunderbolt-2 storage enclosure with speed up to 1375MB/s with RAID 0 (Apple Software RAID). AKiTiO removable trays allow for easy installation and replacement of the 2.5” SATA drives. Designed for 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s drives, SSDs where speed is the priority and HDDs when it's important to maximize the storage capacity. An ultra-durable aluminum casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus a large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.
High-Speed I/O Performance
By incorporating the awesome Thunderbolt 2 interface and combining it with four SSD drives in a RAID 0 software RAID, AKiTiO’s Thunder2 Quad Mini is ready to deliver an extremely fast throughput performance of up to 1375MB/s. Even individually, the SATA 6Gb/s interface allows each drive to run at full SATA-III speeds.
Dual Thunderbolt Ports for Daisy Chain
The second Thunderbolt 2 port lets you daisy chain up to five Thunderbolt devices together. For example, you can attach additional external drives and even a display all connected to your computer through a single cable.
4K Workflow with Thunderbolt 2 Technology
Thunderbolt 2 technology incorporates DisplayPort 1.2 support, which allows for video streaming to a single 4K video monitor. If you are a video editor, you can now use a single port to connect your external storage drives and a 4K display.
Faster Backup and Data Duplication
With the free AKiTiO Data Multiplier application, backing up and duplicating files is faster than ever. In fact, it's about 34% faster when compared to manually copying and pasting the files. Designed with video editors and data imaging technicians in mind, the application requires only a few clicks to simultaneously copy the files from one drive and duplicate them onto up to three other drives.
Real World Benchmark
The maximum real world performance of this Thunderbolt 2 product is about 1375 MB/s. To reach these kind of speeds with the AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad Mini, four SSDs that are combined in a RAID 0 system (Apple Software RAID) are required. Individually (see Non-RAID), each drive can run at full SATA 6Gb/s speeds.
