More Powerful Than You Can Imagine
In a fast-paced, professional environment, time is money and performance is everything. The success of your project depends on quick data processing and demands performance and efficiency working with uncompressed, high bandwidth content streams. ThunderBlade delivers the performance to match – capable of unbelievable transfer speeds up to 2800MB/s. And with SoftRAID, two ThunderBlades can reach dizzying heights up to 3800MB/s.
Don't Take Our Word for It
ThunderBlade continues to impress audio and video experts as an innovative and revolutionary drive. ThunderBlade recently took home two top awards from the 2019 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas. ThunderBlade received the BaM Award in the “Store” category and was named Future’s Best of Show. Both awards are evaluated by industry experts and recognize innovative technology that delivers real business and creative benefits.
At Home on the Road
Designed to be rugged and dependable as well as blazing fast, ThunderBlade is equally at home on the road, on set or in the edit suite. It's compact and tough enough to withstand even the roughest treatment in between locations, and it comes complete with its own ballistic hard-shell case for even greater protection. And with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, ThunderBlade fits your workflow daisy-chain perfectly.
Easy and Complete Drive Management with SoftRAID XT
SoftRAID XT is the most powerful, intuitive RAID management software on the market for macOS and Windows. SoftRAID’s RAID creation and management technology has been finely tuned to perfection with over 20 years of development to provide rock solid protection of your data and optimize drive performance. It is packed with features like multiple RAID options, validation and verification of drives, and predictive disk failure with SoftRAID Monitor. SoftRAID provides a level of performance that you simply can’t get with hardware RAID.
Multiple RAID Levels
Create advanced RAID 0/1/4/5/1+0 (10)1 volumes for higher performance and/or redundancy.2
More accurate than SMART, SoftRAID protects your data by alerting you to issues before anything happens, providing peace of mind and giving you more time to address issues. Solutions that rely exclusively on SMART data can be seeing performance loss or corruption before flagging an issue.
Built-in MacDrive technology lets you read/write SoftRAID HFS+ RAID 0/1/5 arrays and use them interchangeably between Windows and macOS.
With SoftRAID you’re not locked to expensive hardware. SoftRAID is upgradable and portable.
Easy License Management
New license management enables quick activation or deactivation so your license can move between computers.
Works with macOS 10.12 or later and Windows 10 and later.3
SoftRAID is ideal for anyone who needs to safely store and backup massive amounts of data, including video editors, audio producers, photographers and graphic designers.
- RAID 4/1+0 (10) is available for Mac only at this time.
- Improved data protection/redundancy requires RAID 1/4/5/1+0.
- SoftRAID serial numbers work on both Mac and Windows. SoftRAID is licensed per computer. In order to use SoftRAID on multiple computers, you will need a unique, valid license per computer. Additional licenses can be purchased anytime.
