Designed to provide flexibility and reliability for demanding applications, the G-RAID 2 36TB 2-Bay RAID Array from SanDisk Professional is a fast, high-capacity storage solution that supports multi-stream HD, 2K, 4K, and HDR video workflows. Equipped with an overall capacity of 36TB that is made of up 2 x 18TB 7200 rpm Ultrastar Enterprise-class hard drives, the G-RAID 2 delivers data transfer speeds of up to 500 MB/s. In terms of connectivity, this array is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, one 10 Gb/s USB Type-C port, and one HDMI port. While host connectivity is achieved using one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports, or the USB Type-C port, the second Thunderbolt 3 port remains available for daisy-chaining up to five additional devices, including drives, 4K displays, and more, all through a single cable connection.
SanDisk Professional built the G-RAID 2 with a hardware RAID controller that supports RAID 0, which provides enhanced performance, and RAID 1, which supports 1:1 drive mirroring, although this halves the total capacity. For those who do not need a RAID, JBOD is also available. The system comes preconfigured as RAID 0 and formatted for macOS 10.12 and later, although the system may be reformatted for Windows 10. Included is a 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 cable, a USB Type-C to Type-A cable, a power cable, and an AC power adapter, while protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.
For all your demanding workloads and mission-critical content, you can rely on the power and enhanced reliability of the Ultrastar Enterprise-class 7200 rpm hard drives inside.
With dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can conveniently daisy chain up to 5 additional devices to stay connected to multiple drives, 4K displays, and more, through a single connection to your computer.
For maximum performance, the G-RAID 2 comes ready to go in RAID 0 and can be configured to RAID 1 (mirroring) or JBOD for ultimate flexibility.
Quickly move your HD photos and 4K footage to spend less time waiting and more time creating with high-speed data transfers using the Thunderbolt 3 or USB Type-C ports.
With a premium, anodized aluminum enclosure, the G-RAID 2 pairs beautifully with your high-end computer and gives you durable strength you can feel.
Backed by a limited 5-year limited, you can be confident in the reliable storage of the G-RAID 2 for years to come.
