WD, a Western Digital company, today introduced My Passport Pro, the first portable, Thunderbolt-powered dual-drive solution, to the Middle East.

My Passport Pro is directly powered via the integrated Thunderbolt cable and boasts speeds up to 233 MB/s to provide super-fast transfer, edit and backup capabilities.

"The only Thunderbolt dual-drive solution that's bus-powered, WD's My Passport Pro enhances the workflow of mobile creative professionals by providing fast transfers and data protection for the large amounts of digital content they generate outside the studio," said Jim Welsh, executive vice president of branded products and worldwide sales, WD.

"From photographers, videographers and musicians to graphic designers and architects, people who depend on portable storage for their livelihood will find My Passport Pro defines a new level of performance, reliability and especially portability."

Available in 2TB and 4TB capacities, the portable drive consists of two 2.5-inch hard drives housed in a sleek aluminum enclosure and has user-selectable RAID function, which lets users choose data striping (RAID 0) for high performance or mirroring (RAID 1) for data redundancy.

"Thunderbolt technology makes new approaches possible for high-performance workflows," said Jason Ziller, Intel's director of Thunderbolt Marketing. "By combining dual storage drives on a portable, bus-powered device, the My Passport Pro from WD is a uniquely powerful storage solution with high capacity for today's demanding users."
