Add 12TB of USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C storage to your compatible Windows or Mac system with the Mercury Elite Pro Quad 12TB 4-Bay USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C RAID Array (4 x 3TB) from OWC / Other World Computing. This array is preconfigured as RAID 5 via included SoftRAID XT software. 12TB also provides you with plenty of space to store files such as music, photos, movies, and documents. This array provides sequential compressible read speeds of up to 528 MB/s, sequential compressible write speeds of up to 599 MB/s, sequential incompressible read speeds of up to 507 MB/s, and sequential incompressible write speeds of up to 527 MB/s.
Within the array are four SATA III drive bays that can each house a single 3.5" or 2.5" drive using the included drive brackets. Each drive bay has a 3TB 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" hard drive, each of which has a 64MB cache, for a total system cache of 256MB. The array is software-configured as RAID 5, which provides a good balance of performance and redundancy. It can be configured as RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 4, and 5, each of which provides performance, data redundancy, or both.
This volume will be recognized on systems running OS X 10.6 and later, as well as Windows 7 and later. Connectivity to your host system is achieved using an integrated 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, and both USB Type-C to Type-C and USB Type-C to Type-A cables are included to help ensure compatibility with modern and legacy systems. To help ensure a smooth operating environment, the array is built using heat-dissipating aluminum, uses a cooling fan, and its included 100-240 VAC power supply runs at 50/60 Hz to help ensure worldwide compatibility. Also included is a power cable and two front panel keys.
