Gemini
16.0TB Thunderbolt 3 Dock and Dual-Drive RAID Solution

Thunderbolt 3 / SATA 6.0GB/s / USB 3.1 / GbE / DisplayPort
 
 
 
Your Multitool for Digital Workflows
With dual drive bays, and seven connectivity ports including an SD 4.0 card reader, the OWC Gemini is the do-it-all tool that will organize your digital life. You’ll have plenty of room to duplicate footage, create and manage archives, or render and process effects. Connect your favorite peripherals via USB ports. Ingest the day’s shoot or drone footage with the frontside reader.
Configure to Your Unique Needs
You can customize the Gemini to quickly adapt to project changes and help you stay ahead of deadlines. Install your choice of 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs and even combine the speed of a SSD and with the cost-effective storage capacity of a HDD. With built-in hardware RAID, you have four drive set-up choices:

  • Non-RAID to keep the drives as independent volumes
  • RAID 1 (mirror) for backup reliability
  • RAID 0 (stripe) for optimal performance and maximum speed or use 
  • Span to combine the drive capacities into one huge volume for extra-large storage capacities

Done with the drives but need the connectivity? Just eject the RAID from your computer and the Gemini keeps you working smoothly.
Full Stream Ahead
The Gemini features a 1Gb Ethernet port to keep you connected at speeds that leave WiFi in the dust. A must-have for shared workflows and workspaces, Ethernet connectivity speeds up file transfers giving you an edge on your work in progress.
Professional Grade = Ready to Work
We understand having confidence in gear reliability is paramount to creative professionals. That’s why we subject every configured Gemini solution to a multi-step performance certification prior to shipping - ensuring it arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.

Designed by OWC hardware and software engineers, Dock Ejector ensures all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss.

Notes

  • This device has to be connected to the computer via Thunderbolt 3 and it cannot be used as a NAS. The Ethernet port provides the computer with an 1GbE network connection over Thunderbolt 3 but it cannot be used to access the data on the drives over the network.
  • When using 8TB or 10TB HDDs from Seagate and connecting the device to a PC running Windows, please make sure to first install the Windows driver. The DisplayPort does not support DP++. When using a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, make sure to use an active adapter.
  • The DisplayPort on this device is not compatible with Apple Cinema Displays that require a Mini DisplayPort connection (2010, 2013 models). The display will not function even when connected via a DP > MDP adapter. This is a limitation of the Thunderbolt chipset in the Elite Pro Dock.
