Built with two 10,000 RPM WD VelociRaptor drives inside, the WD My Book VelociRaptor Duo dual-drive storage system delivers extreme speed for high-end video and photo editing, 3D rendering, graphic-intensive design, and more.
Move data at unprecedented speeds
The bi-directional Thunderbolt cable provides two channels of up to 10 Gbit/s transfer rate in both directions. This allows data to travel both ways without compromising bandwidth, so you can do more work in less time. Finally, a drive that can keep up with your creativity.
Dual drive RAID storage system
User selectable RAID or JBOD modes. Set to RAID 0 (striping) for even more performance. When set to RAID 1 (mirroring), this drive provides double safe data protection by automatically generating a duplicate copy of your data. Set to JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) to use as two individual drives and select between HFS+J or exFAT per disk. Ideal for running Windows OS on a Mac.
Daisy-chain more drives for more speed
The dual Thunderbolt ports allow you to daisy-chain more drives for more speed and higher capacity. Connect a Thunderbolt display and other Thunderbolt-enabled peripherals to achieve maximum efficiency and productivity.
The revolutionary bi-directional Thunderbolt technology delivers unmatched speed for multi-tasking while video editing, 3D rendering, and completing other graphics-intensive projects.
To replace a drive simply open the case and exchange the existing drive. If you fill up a drive, you can easily remove it and replace it with a fresh drive and begin saving even more of your creative life.
