Dual Thunderbolt™ and Dual SSD: Harness the Full Potential of Thunderbolt™

Buffalo Technology's new SSD-WAT series DriveStation™ Mini Thunderbolt™ has two Solid State Drives (SSD), and two Thunderbolt™ ports, which together can realize the SSD-WAT's full potential to deliver fantastic speed.

Perfect for creative production environments, demanding applications, and demanding home users.

Dual SSD and dual Thunderbolt™ ports deliver amazing speed

With read speed of approximately 615 MBps, and write speed of about 760 MBps*, Buffalo's DriveStation™ Mini Thunderbolt™ is ready to face the most demanding applications, perform fast data transfers, backups, and more. In practical terms these benchmarks equate to copying 800MB (+/- 1000 photos) in 1.3 seconds.

Apple friendly

The DriveStation™ Mini Thunderbolt™ can be formatted to support both PC and Mac® making it a great portable storage solution for any device. Native Compatibility with Mac OS X Time Machine also makes it an ideal solution for backup with Mac computers.

RAID

When paired with a RAID-capable host the the SSD-WAT's dual SSD facilitate software RAID.

It's possible to set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which provides data protection if one disk fails. Alternatively, configure it as a striped RAID set (RAID 0) to maximize speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers.

Daisy-chain additional drives

The ability to daisy-chain additional drives - further increasing both speed and capacity benchmarks - make the SSDWAT series perfect for creative production environments and other professional applications as well as demanding home users.
