OWC Mercury Pro LTO

This easily integrated tape backup and archiving solution is a mission-critical requirement for protecting and preserving vast volumes of data for more extended periods with the familiar drag-and-drop operation and better economies of scale than disk-based storage. The OWC Mercury Pro LTO is the answer to this challenge and is now available with LTO-9. Ruggedly small with a built-in handle, the Mercury Pro LTO can go on-set or move among studio, department, or office computers for a shared data protection solution. Configurable by adding up to a 16TB SSD in the universal 2.5/3.5-inch drive expansion bay and expandable by utilizing the second Thunderbolt 3 port to add up to five additional Thunderbolt devices or your choice of a USB-C or DisplayPort device. See more with the DisplayPort 1.4 for connecting to an 8K display. Charge while working 85W of notebook charging. Also available in LTO 8.

It can easily handle workflows and the speed demands of pro audio, design, and photography workflows. And it serves up real-world performance speeds up to 2847MB/s with modern Thunderbolt and USB4 equipped Macs and PCs.
