The ThunderStream SC 4808D Thunderbolt 2 to 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Desklink from ATTO Technology provides latency management and RAID protection for SAS/SATA devices which are accessible by Thunderbolt-enabled host systems. It features time-proven ATTO RAID technology and other proprietary technologies to provide the highest performing shared storage solution in its class. The ThunderStream SC 4808D 20 Gb/s (2 Port) Thunderbolt 2 to 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA (2 Port) RAID Desklink is a suitable solution for users looking to achieve the highest I/O and data throughput for advanced video and access to IT applications.
Thunderbolt technology is new, high-speed I/O technology designed for performance, simplicity and flexibility. It features:
Simultaneous bi-directional, 20 Gb/s transfer over a single cable
Dual-protocol support (PCIe and DisplayPort)
Compatible with existing DisplayPort devices
Choice of electrical or optical cables
Low latency with highly accurate time synchronization for professional audio and video application
Use native protocol software drivers
Power-over-cable for bus-powered devices
Advanced Data Streaming (ADS)
The Latency-management technology that controls the acceleration of data transfers to move large amounts of data faster and more efficiently.
Drive assessment and latency management technology which minimizes the likelihood of RAID Groups becoming prematurely degraded or taken offline due to slow drives that ensures uninterrupted access to media.
Industry Proven Technology
The 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Desklink features time-proven ATTO RAID technology and other proprietary technologies to provide the highest performing shared storage solution in its class. It integrates with disk drives to enable a small form factor, high performance RAID array.
