Big, Fast and Fault-Tolerant Storage for Photographers and Videographers: 8TB Drives Singly or as RAID-4, RAID-5, RAID-10, RAID-0

32TB RAID-4 from 5 X 8TB HGST Ultrastar He8

Get HGST 8TB Ultrastar He8 Hard Drive or OWC Thunderbay 4 RAID-5 edition at OWC.

Update: OWC has a special price on the 8TB HGST Ultrastar He8 for MPG readers.

Over at MacPerformanceGuide.com, now up is review coverage of the HGST 8TB Ultrastar He8 Hard Drive in all sorts of configurations.

RAID performance of all flavors with SoftRAID is impressively scalable in the superlative OWC Thunderbay 4, which is wonderful since Disk Utility is no longer a realistic option*. SoftRAID is included in the purchase of the OWC Thunderbay 4 RAID-5 edition.

See also RAID-5 / RAID-4 Can be Partitioned to Suit. And of course it’s possible to make single drive / single volumes with SoftRAID; it is eminently flexible.

With the OWC Thunderbay 4 RAID-5 edition, you get SoftRAID and can choose single drive/volume, or RAID-o or RAID-1 or RAID-4 or RAID-5 or RAID-10. Performance and scalability are outstanding.

* With the lobotomy that Apple performed on Disk Utility in OS El Capitan (shamefully and unprofessionally leaving OS X RAID users hung out to dry) SoftRAID is the only realistic choice for RAID on OS X today since Disk Utility won’t even show RAID status any more.
