Blistering speed. Massive capacity. RAID-ready flexibility. Swappable convenience. The OWC U2 Shuttle is everything you’ve wanted in a multiple blade SSD but couldn’t get until now. It is the world’s first shuttle for four NVMe SSDs that easily inserts into 3.5 inch drive bays. Built for OWC storage and PCIe expansion solutions, this innovative carrier shuttle can also be used with PCs and servers with U.2 drive bays.

Easy Swaps

Move between OWC U.2 storage solutions as well as PCs, enclosures, and servers


RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, or 1+0 (10) gives you speed, protection, or the best of both attributes

Media Workflows

Dramatically lowers production-to-lab shipping costs vs shipping larger, heavier drives


Use with OWC Mercury Helios 3S equipped with U.2 NVMe Interchange System, OWC ThunderBay Flex 8, and OWC Mercury Pro U.2 Dual as well as any computer with NVMe U.2 support and an available 3.5-inch drive bay


Key lock for data security compliance

Ideal for Media Production

Imagine… no more tedious and time-consuming drive enclosure disassembly. No more costly fees to ship an entire enclosure just to get a day’s shoot to post-production.

By utilizing a U.2 port equipped OWC solution or a PC with an available 3.5-inch drive bay on both ends, you can simply ship the shuttle to the post lab where it swaps in quickly and economically. Compact and lightweight for easy travel!

More RAID Options

With four NVMe SSDs, the OWC U2 Shuttle gives you more RAID options than a dual drive enclosure or adapter card. Now you can harness the power of RAID 0, 1, 4, 5 or 1+0 (10) via your choice of RAID utilities—including SoftRAID, the easiest to use, most fully featured software RAID package available.

This powerful and intuitive software offers maximum volume capacity, optimum drive performance, data protection, or a combination of attributes. Ideal for anyone who needs to safely store and backup massive amounts of data, such as video editors, audio producers, photographers and graphic designers.

NVMe Server Ready

When your resource-heavy server application has to complete thousands of operations per second, the OWC U2 Shuttle has the chops to keep up. This little number’s high-performance, Triple-Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND with SLC caching and its Phison E12 controller with 7% over-provisioning ensure fast and smooth access to large volumes of data.

From running double checks on data and correcting errors, to ensuring the uniform use of its flash media, Aura Ultra III preconfigured U2 Shuttles are calibrated for maximum endurance. They’re custom-crafted to go the distance for the best and longest working life.
