For anyone that has owned an Apple computer, it's rather safe to say you have heard of OWC, and chances are, you have most likely purchased your Mac memory or SSD upgrade from them.

Today, we won't be looking at memory or solid state drives but rather an external storage solution from OWC called the ThunderBay IV. The ThunderBay IV, as you can imagine, is a Thunderbolt storage solution featuring a four bay design. Capacity options range from 4TB to 16TB with an additional diskless option.

Being a multiple bay storage solution, through Disk Utility in OS X, you can setup this storage solution in striped, mirrored, or concatenated modes with the additional JBOD mode as well.
