External solid state drives (SSDs) are a great alternative to flash drives, especially if there’s a need to transport large amounts of data. External SSDs are far more durable than traditional hard drives and feature fewer moving parts, greater shock resistance, and less heat generation. These can be connected to any computer through USB connections, allowing the data to be accessed far more quickly than with traditional HDDs. This increases employee’s mobility and provides extra notebook memory, which greatly improves their overall efficiency.
In case you’ve been looking for a new external SSD, OWC just released its newest SSD; the OWC Envoy Pro EX with USB-C, which is “the fastest USB-C SSD ever built”. OWC is both a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company as well as one of the world’s most respected manufacturers when it comes SSDs, Thunderbolt external drives, PC & Mac docking solutions and performance upgrade kits.

In April, OWC was honored to have its Thunder blade SSD awarded a prestigious 2019 BaM Award at the 2019 NAB by a panel of 40+ independent subject matter experts.
