User-configurable RAID for speed or double-safe data protection.
You can select the RAID mode that's right for you. Choose RAID 0 (striping) for the performance you need when designing or editing graphic-intensive media files. When the drive is set to RAID 1 (mirroring) it provides double-safe data protection by automatically generating a duplicate copy of your data. Set the drive to JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) to use as two individual drives and select between HFS+J or ExFAT per disk. Ideal for running Windows® OS on a Mac®.

Daisy chain several drives together for even faster speed.
The intelligent Thunderbolt connector provides two channels of up to 10Gb/s transfer rate in both directions. This means data can travel both ways without compromising bandwidth. Add to that the power of multiple drives processing data and you get amazing speed.
