Innovation Meets Versatility

  • Configurable: choose from preconfigured solutions or add your own NVMe M.2 2280 SSDs
  • RAID-Ready: RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, or 1+0 (10) gives you speed, protection, or the best of both attributes
  • Compatible: use with OWC Mercury Helios 3S equipped with U.2 NVMe Interchange System, ThunderBay Flex 8, and Mercury Pro U.2 Dual (coming soon), as well as any computer with NVMe U.2 support in an available 3.5-inch drive bay
  • Easy swaps: move between OWC U.2 devices, as well as PCs, enclosures, and servers
  • Media workflows: dramatically lowers production-to-lab shipping larger, heavier drives
  • Secure: key lock for data security compliance

Boldly Goes Where No Drive Has Gone Before

The OWC U2 Shuttle is everything you've wanted in a multiple blade SSD but couldn't get until now. It is the world's first U.2 carrier shuttle for 3.5-inch drive bays that combines four NVMe M.2 SSDs.

More RAID Options

With four NVMe SSDs, the OWC U2 Shuttle gives you more RAID options than a dual drive enclosure or adapter card. Now you can harness the power of RAID 0, 1, 4, 5 or 1+0 (10) via your choice of RAID utilities — including SoftRAID, the easiest to use, most fully featured software RAID package available. This powerful and intuitive software offers maximum volume capacity, optimum drive performance, data protection, or a combination of attributes. Ideal for anyone who needs to safely store and backup massive amounts of data, such as video editors, audio producers, photographers and graphic designers.

Ideal for Media Production

Imagine... no more tedious and time-consuming drive enclosure disassembly. No more costly fees to ship an entire enclosure just to get a day’s shoot to post-production. By utilizing a U.2 port equipped OWC solution or a PC with an available 3.5-inch drive bay on both ends, you can simply ship the shuttle to the post lab where it swaps in quickly and economically. Compact and lightweight for easy travel!

NVMe Server Ready

When your resource-heavy server application has to complete thousands of operations per second, the OWC U2 Shuttle preconfigured with OWC Aura Ultra III Pro SSDs, has the chops to keep up. This little number’s high-performance, Triple-Level Cell (TLC) 3D NAND with SLC caching and its Phison E12 controller with 7% over-provisioning ensure fast and smooth access to large volumes of data. From running double checks on data and correcting errors, to ensuring the uniform use of its flash media, Aura Ultra III equipped U2 Shuttles are optimized for the best and longest working life.
