Akitio Thunder2QUAD - 4Bay Thunderbolt™ 2 Storage Solution
BREA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Akitio has expanded their line of Thunderbolt™ storage solutions to
include the new Thunder2QUAD, a 4bay Thunderbolt 2 product that is large
enough and fast enough for professional 4K video editing and can be used
in various other occupations where larger storage capacity and
high-speed data transfer speeds are required.
The QUAD holds up to four drives and can handle 3.5", 2.5" or solid
state drives. Capacity can reach up to 20 Terabytes when using 3.5"
drives and reaches transfer speeds of up to 1.4 Gigabytes per second
when four SSDs are installed.
This extremely fast, large capacity storage device will be sold both as
an empty enclosure and with pre-installed drives (either hard drives or
SSDs). As with all Akitio Thunderbolt products, the QUAD will come with
a Thunderbolt cable.
The Thunder2QUAD joins an already impressive line-up of Thunderbolt
products from Akitio which now includes one bay, twobay and four bay
storage products such as the Palm RAID that recently won Best of Show at
Macworld 2014, as well as PCI (News - Alert) expansion and Thunderbolt docking
"Thunderbolt 2 creates an entirely new way of thinking about 4K
workflows, specifically the ability to support 4K video transfer and
data delivery concurrently," said Jason Ziller, Marketing Director for
Thunderbolt at Intel (News - Alert)®. "Devices such as the Akitio Thunder2QUAD allow
users to experience the awesome speed, performance, and flexibility of
Thunderbolt 2 by managing 4K workloads in ways previously unimaginable."
Price and Availability
The Akitio Thunder2QUAD will be available on Amazon.com (News - Alert), at Akitio.com
and from other resellers for the low price of just $449.99.
