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
  • Broad Compatibility: use with OWC Mercury Helios 3S equipped with U.2 NVMe Interchange System, OWC ThunderBay Flex 8, and OWC Flex 1U4, as well as any computer with NVMe U.2 support and 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!

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.

A Complete Swap and Share Ecosystem

When you need to move data outside or beyond the local network, U2 Shuttle helps you go with the flow. Thanks to the OWC U.2 ecosystem, moving and sharing data with U2 Shuttle is fast and easy. Swap out and ship a project from field to post in video production workflows. Move backup data to an offline colocation for backup workflows. The combination of U2 Shuttle and the OWC U.2 ecosystem opens a new dimension to data transfer possibilities.
