ThunderBay Flex 8 is the one Thunderbolt 3 desktop device that rules them all. With an irresistible economy of scale, this consolidated solution is ideal for anyone waiting for the right moment to invest in Thunderbolt technology.
To get the maximum combination of safety and speed out of your 8 Bay RAID, we at MediaDrives.ie recommend setting your unit to ‘RAID 5’, which means you lose 25% of your storage capacity (so a 48TB becomes an 36TB) but in the unlikely event one or even two of the internal enterprise class HDDs failing at some stage over the years, your data is still fully protected and can be rebuilt from the remaining internal drives.
