Your Multitool for Digital Workflows
With dual drive bays, and seven connectivity ports including an SD 4.0 card reader, the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dock is the do-it-all tool that will organize your digital life. You’ll have plenty of room to duplicate footage, create and manage archives, or render and process effects. Connect your favorite peripherals via USB ports. Ingest the day’s shoot or drone footage with the frontside reader.
Hardware RAID: Speed, Reliability, Flexibility
The Mercury Elite Pro Dock utilizes hardware RAID to unleash the full potential of two 3.5" 7200RPM hard drives. Preconfigured in high-speed RAID 0 mode to deliver maximum sustained throughput from its drives, the Mercury Elite Pro Dock offers real-world speeds up to 773MB/s to handle HD video workflows. If you desire the extra security of mirrored data, you can configure the Mercury Elite Pro Dock in RAID 1 mode. Need more drive flexibility? Set up a span to combine the capacity of the two drives into one huge volume or use the drives as independent volumes.
Future Project Ready
You can customize the Mercury Elite Pro Dock to quickly adapt to project changes and help you stay ahead of deadlines. Install your choice of 2.5” or 3.5” HDDs or SSD and even combine the speed of an SSD with the cost-effective storage capacity of an 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? Just eject the RAID from your computer and the Mercury Elite Pro Dock keeps you working smoothly.
Full Stream Ahead
The Mercury Elite Pro Dock features a 1Gb Ethernet port to keep you connected at speeds that leave WiFi in the dust. A must-have for shared workflows and workspaces, Ethernet connectivity speeds up file transfers giving you an edge on your work in progress.
Professional Grade = Ready to Work
We understand having confidence in gear reliability is paramount to creative professionals. That’s why every Mercury Elite Pro Dock configured solution undergoes OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure prior to shipping. This ensures it arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.
