OWC has unveiled its Thunderbay 8 storage solution that offers up to 128 TB storage and uses Thunderbolt 3 to reach speeds of up to 2586 MB/s. Those who are in dire need of even more storage can daisy-chain up to six units together for up to 768 TB of storage capacity.
Those in search for a fast and big storage solution just got one more option to pick from, with the Thunderbay 8 from OWC. Aside from its big storage capacity and its fast speed, the product also offers good compatibility as it is designed to use Thunderbolt 3 but is backwards-compatible with Thunderbolt 2 and Thunderbolt. Thunderbay 8 comes with eight “hot-swappable universal drive bays”, meaning that HDDs and SSDs of both 3.5” and 2.5” sizes can be mixed and matched.
