Configure to Your Unique Needs

You can customize the Gemini to quickly adapt to project changes and help you stay ahead of deadlines. Install your choice of 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs and even combine the speed of a SSD with the cost-effective storage capacity of a HDD. With built-in hardware RAID, you have four drive set-up choices:

  • Non-RAID to keep the drives as independent volumes
  • RAID 1 (mirror) for backup reliability
  • RAID 0 (stripe) for optimal performance and maximum speed or use
  • Span to combine the drive capacities into one huge volume for extra-large storage capacities

Done with the drives but need the connectivity? Use OWC's free Dock Ejector utility to quickly and safely eject the RAID or any other disks attached to the Gemini.

Reclaim Your Desktop

With multi-drive media dumps, controllers, A/V outputs, and a mess of device cables, it can be hard enough to find space for your notebook let alone room to work. Gemini fights the clutter with a single-cable connection that delivers storage, ethernet sharing, charging power, and 8K display support while neatly consolidating all your peripheral device cables. Reclaim your workspace and reduce your stress.
