Looking at the DriveStation, we find it having a rather small footprint similar in size to the Little Big Disk from LaCie.

The back of the unit houses dual Thunderbolt ports along with the cooling fan and power input.

Internally, the DriveStation uses the 3510L Thunderbolt controller form Intel. We also have two Toshiba SSDs.
