OWC Accelsior 4M2 is a PCIe card from Other World Computing Inc. (macsales.com) that hosts four M.2 NVMe SSDs. Each SSD socket offers full x4 speed for maximum performance, and the full-height, half-length card handles PCI 3.0 at x8 speed in a 2019 Mac Pro or other computers (including slower PCIe 2.0 systems, such as classic Mac Pros).
You can boot off a single M.2 SSD, while the bundled SoftRAID app can create RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 1+0 (10) volumes (sans support for FileVault encryption) for speeds “over 6,000 MB/s” (RAID-0, SoftRAID, two cards) with up to 8TB per card. Other features include “silent cooling via a finned heat sink cover”, an ASMedia ASM2824 controller, 380TBW endurance, and Trim support (OS-dependent).
OWC Accelsior 4M2 is priced from $479.99 with 1TB (Toshiba TLC flash) to $1,599.99 with 8 TB. (Apple charges $2,600 for 8TB storage in a 2019 Mac Pro.)
OWC 2019 Mac Pro RAM upgrades are new from Other World Computing Inc. (macsales.com) at lower prices than what Apple charges for its own memory in the high-end computer. OWC’s memory is available in a wide range of sizes in both LRDIMM (for larger capacities) and RDIMM (better for more limited capacities).
OWC 2019 Mac Pro RAM is priced according to type and size, e.g. $84.99 for 16 GB vs. $400 at Apple for the same thing, on up to $19,998.99 for 1.5 TB, which is a $25,000 upgrade at Apple. And, unlike Apple’s memory, OWC’s RAM comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Features include four 2.5″ drive bays with slide-in trays (for 6Gbps SATA SSDs or hard drives), dual Thunderbolt ports, a compact aluminum enclosure with “32.5dB cooling fan”, and SoftRAID software for combining drives in a variety of RAID configurations for improved performance and reliability (although SoftRAID is not currently compatible with FileVault 2 encryption or Fusion drive configurations).
ThunderBay 4 Mini is priced from $299.99 as a bare enclosure with SoftRAID Lite to $2,069.99 with four 2TB SSDs and the full SoftRAID XT software version, for macOS 10.13 and later.
