Mercury Pro U.2 Dual 
0GB 3.5-inch Dual NVMe U.2 Enclosure

 
 
 
Professional Grade Thunderbolt (USB-C) Dual Bay U.2 SSD Enclosure for Mac and Windows PCs
 
Blazing-fast NVMe SSD performance meets massive capacity in this compact, dual-bay Thunderbolt storage solution. It’s perfect for everything from routine backups to high-bandwidth pro creative uses.
Edit, Ingest, and Backup in a Blink
The Mercury Pro U.2 Dual is ready for you to install two NVMe U.2 SSDs, so you can edit high-res files on the fly, ingest and duplicate dailies without a hitch, rip through the tightest of timelines, and backup huge music and photo libraries in a flash. While it offers blazingly fast performance with massive storage capacity, this compact solution is small enough to easily fit on a DIT cart, in a rack, or on your desktop.
Nearly 6x Faster SSD Performance
NVMe U.2 SSD use began in the corporate and server market, where ROI is defined in nanoseconds and dependability is paramount. Now, the Mercury Pro U.2 Dual brings enterprise-level performance and reliability to your home or office. The NVMe SSDs utilize Thunderbolt’s full 2800MB/s of data bandwidth capability, so it functions nearly 6x faster than your typical SSD.
Adaptable Flexibility
The Mercury Pro U.2 Dual easily handles any project backup and storage task you throw at it. Dual drive bays house NVMe U.2 SSDs, ready for the RAID level of your choice, to tackle nearly any data need imaginable. From personal videos to major motion pictures, from photo shoots to file backups... the Mercury Pro U.2 Dual gives you the necessary capacity and horsepower get the job done.
Reconfiguration Ready
Configure the Mercury Pro U.2 Dual to your liking, but you can rest assured that when you want to change your drive configuration for more RAID capabilities or additional storage capacity, there’s no need to buy a costly new enclosure. The Mercury Pro U.2 Dual is ready to change with you. Configure and reconfigure Mercury Pro U.2 Dual…
  • for cost-effective and streamlined RAID 0 and RAID 1 storage needs using a 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch U.2 drive or NVMe M.2 SSDs and a U.2 adapter like the OWC U2 ShuttleOne in each bay.
  • for advanced RAID and capacity needs using an OWC U2 Shuttle, containing up to four NVMe M.2 SSDs, in each bay (coming soon).
Store More, See More, Do More
An extra Thunderbolt USB-C port lets you daisy-chain devices to your Mercury Pro U.2 Dual to expand your capabilities. Add up to five additional Thunderbolt solutions and merge them with the included SoftRAID software for mind-blowing storage. Attach a 5K display or two 4K Thunderbolt displays. You can even place a USB device at the end of the chain. The Mercury Pro U.2 Dual gives you the freedom to use more of what you need.
Includes SoftRAID XT: Easy and Complete Drive Management
SoftRAID XT is the most powerful, intuitive software RAID utility on the market. Multiple RAID levels let you select the RAID level that fits you or your project’s needs best. If you need maximum volume capacity, optimum drive performance, data protection, or a combination of attributes, SoftRAID has you covered.
Packed with features like drive validation, verification and failure prediction—SoftRAID includes features you simply don’t get with hardware RAID. It’s like having a datacenter on your desktop! From home users looking to protect photos and documents to professionals needing to protect and quickly access projects, SoftRAID is the perfect solution.

Your Digital Life…Protected for FREE
