AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad - with Silent Fan Option installed

Faster than ever, you can now achieve speeds of up to 1375MB/s with this 4-bay Thunderbolt™ 2 technology storage enclosure. The removable trays allow for easy installation and replacement of the drives. It is designed for both 2.5" SSDs where speed is the priority and for 3.5" HDDs when it's important to maximize the storage capacity. An ultra durable aluminum casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus an extra large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.

We've replaced the OEM rear fan with a high tech Noise Blocker BlackSilentPro with incredibly low 13.4 dB/A compared to 25 bB/A with the stock fan. Designed in Germany, this fan incorporates a silicon gasket that isolates any fan vibration from the frame. The fan utilities a Bayer Makrolon rotor with anti-dust technology to prevent contamination that causes fan bearing noise.  This enclosure is ideal for studios or other work environment where noise needs to be minimized.  Add any of our selection of Hard Disk Drives, or we can special order any brand of 24/7 Enterprise level drives to complete your order.  When purchased with the Thunder2 Quad, we'll install and test the entire setup before delivering to you, giving you extra piece of mind!

4K Workflow with Thunderbolt 2 Technology

Faster Backup and Data Duplication

With the free AKiTiO Data Multiplier application, backing up and duplicating files is faster than ever. In fact, it's about 34% faster when compared to manually copying and pasting the files. Designed with video editors and data imaging technicians in mind, the application requires only a few clicks to simultaneously copy the files from one drive and duplicate them onto up to three other drives.
