The xMac Pro Server PCIe 2.0 Thunderbolt 2 Expansion System from Sonnet is a 4U rackmount enclosure for the Mac Pro. It has three integrated PCIe 2.0 slots, 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 technology, and expandability of Echo Express III R Thunderbolt 2 expansion chassis for PCIe cards. Like the III R, the xMac Pro Server provides space to mount additional equipment, such as storage expansion. To support a wide range of mobile racks, carts, and portable rack cases, the xMac Pro server is 16- deep. The xMac Pro Server securely holds the computer and installed cards, making your Mac Pro road ready.
The xMac Pro server supports three full length PCIe cards. It has a universal 300W power supply and includes a 75W PCIe power connector for cards that require supplementary power, such as the Avid Pro Tools|HDX or the new RED ROCKET X. The xMac Pro server is eco friendly, as it automatically powers the PCIe expansion system on or off whenever the connected computer powers on or wakes, or powers off or sleeps, respectively.
Note! Mac Pro, PCIe cards, and mobile rack device mounting kits are sold separately.
PROVIDES PCIE CARD EXPANSION FOR MAC PRO
Constructed of heavy duty steel, xMac Pro servers outer enclosure provides secure mounting and protection for the computer and PCIe cards installed inside. Hidden behind a front panel, both the computer and PCIe card expansion system reside in separate modules to simplify setup and maintenance, allowing you to work with computer or cards individually. A protective cocoon of steel with soft touch padding to hold the Mac Pro firmly in place, while protecting its mirror finish. There is leftover space in the enclosure, suitable for mounting additional equipment such as hard disk drives, solid state drives, a tape drive, optical drive, or even a Qio MR pro media reader.
MAKES YOUR MAC PRO ROAD READY
4U rackmount enclosure securely holds the computer and PCIe cards in place, adding mobility to the Mac.
THREE PCIE SLOTS
The xMac Pro server supports three full length PCIe cards or one double width, full length card plus one single width card, enabling it to support Thunderbolt compatible card available. PCIe 1.1, PCIe 2.0, and PCIe 3.0 cards are supported.
THUNDERBOLT 2 INTERFACE
The Mac Pro includes six high bandwidth Thunderbolt 2 ports The original 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt on older computers interface provided breakthrough bandwidth for external expansion, more than sufficient to support the maximum performance of most PCIe cards. However, some high bandwidth cards such as the RED ROCKET, 16Gb Fibre Channel, multi port 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and other bandwidth hungry adapters require more than 10Gbps. Thunderbolt 2 technology provides higher bandwidth for demanding applications. The xMac Pro servers 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 interface uses this increased bandwidth to ensure optimum performance from installed cards connected to the Mac Pro. If you need to connect a peripheral equipped with 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt, xMac Pro server is compatible with earlier generation Thunderbolt devices as well.
