Delivering your data, faster.

Anyone who has waited for files to copy, load, compile, render, or export knows that your disk speed really matters.

For most media professionals, it is not the processor or graphics cards that are preventing you from working quicker, but the speed at which your files can be loaded, manipulated and transferred. With the Thunder Rocket, we have pushed this to the limit of the available technology.
Delivering your data, faster.

Work on the go. One cable.

The Thunder Rocket uses one tethered cable for both data transfer and power supply, stored neatly in the cable management solution built into the rugged bumper. Unwrap, plug in and you're ready for blast-off!

Palm-sized, and weighing just 240g (8.5oz.), it can be easily carried with you wherever you go. Create in the field and then begin the edit on the journey home.
Work on the go. One cable.

Cool as a Cucumber.

Reading and writing at 1GB/s+ is hot work. To cool the world's fastest portable storage, we have taken the revolutionary step of adding Heat Pipe Technology to our Thunder Rocket, a world first for external storage hardware.

By substantially reducing the thermal gradient between the interior air and our aluminium casing, we ensure that the Thunder Rocket is always functioning at a healthy temperature, eliminating the risk of overheating, increasing the life span of your drive and ensuring smooth performance, no matter how hard you work.

Tried & Tested

We have tested the Thunder Rocket with industry experts. They have given us plenty of use-cases of how it helped speed up their workflow and even included a how-to so you can do the same!
Video Production
Media Production is one of the most demanding processes in the world and it requires a supercharged work-flow. With the revolution of 2K and 4K video, the read/write speeds now required to live-edit and process projects has caused this to become a much more daunting task than before. By introducing the Thunder Rocket, Videographers can save time, edit projects quicker, and cut export times by almost half.
Photography
Post-producing large sets of RAW images is a slow but essential part of a photographer’s work-flow and grinds to a crawl if there are multiple edits working at once primarily because of the read/write speeds of the internal, or external storage device being used. The Thunder Rocket is at least 2-times faster than even the internal storage of a high-spec MacBook meaning a much faster editing and export process.
Other Programs
Not only can the Thunder Rocket be used with the popular creative professional programs, but also used as a tool in an everyday workflow. It can be used as an actual boot disk which means that it can be loaded on any Thunderbolt enabled Mac, with a performance that overtakes the internal storage.
