U.2 NVMe Interchange System Drive Carrier Tray

For media and entertainment industry professionals seeking the fastest performance from U.2 NVMe SSDs with easy drive swap convenience in a protective, transportable carrier.
Save Time and Money While Securing Data
The future data storage standard for production and post production workflows has arrived!
Speed. Security. Savings. The holy trinity of production to lab data storage workflow is transformed by the OWC U.2 NVMe Interchange System. It works with either the OWC ThunderBay Flex 8 or Mercury Helios 3S with Interchange System Drive Bay to deliver a time and money-saving swappable U.2 NVMe SSD storage solution perfect for high-performance film production requirements.
Over 6X Faster SSD Performance
The e in U.2 NVMe SSDs stands for express…as in PCI Express. Its a more direct and optimized path to a computers processor for the fastest data connection possible. While SATA is the most common consumer-grade SSD connection with up to 6Gb/s transfer rates, U.2 NVMe SSDs are designed to take advantage of the direct connection PCIe technology offers to achieve rates up to 40Gb/s…over 6X faster performance! Its no wonder U.2 NVMe SSD use began in the enterprise and server market where ROI is defined in nanoseconds and ensuring reliability is paramount.
Now you can rapidly checksum, data transfer, and transcode the days shoot into the OWC ThunderBay Flex 8 or OWC Mercury Helios 3S, quickly pull the Interchange System tray mounted U.2 NVMe SSD out and send it on to postproduction. Imagine…no more tedious and time-consuming drive enclosure disassembly to access a storage drive and install a new drive.
Save Time and Money While Securing Data
For over three decades, OWC has listened to its customers and created innovative solutions that solved their data storage challenges. The OWC U.2 NVMe Interchange System continues that rich history with an integrated solution that saves M&E industry professionals time and money while safeguarding their data.
Need to get that drive to post production on a tight deadline with an equally tight project budget? Just pull the Interchange System drive tray out of the drive bay and ship it to enjoy significant cost savings over shipping a heavy enclosure. Then just swap in another drive with an additional tray (sold separately) to keep your data and projects flowing smoothly and securely.
