The Rocstor Thunderstudio 16TB Thunderbolt 2 RAID Array houses your Apple Mac Pro to provide it with four additional PCIe x16 slots as well as 16TB of RAID-capable storage drives. The Thunderstudio features eight 2.5" hot-swappable drive bays, which house eight 2TB SATA 7,200 rpm HDDs. To enhance this storage solution, Rocstor has included an ATTO 6Gb SAS RAID controller that lets you set the drives in a RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 10 50, or 60 array via a browser-based GUI system. In addition, this PCIe x8 controller card occupies one of the four PCIe slots and comes with 1GB of ECC memory.
The Rocstor Thunderstudio RAID array supports virtually all full-height and full-length PCI cards. For powering the drives and dedicated graphics cards, a 460W power supply is on board. The Thunderstudio sports four Thunderbolt 2 ports, which are driven by two independent Thunderbolt 20 Gb/s bridge circuits. Each of these circuits manages two of the four PCIe slots, providing high-speed bandwidth for your demanding applications. The Thunderstudio connects to your Mac Pro via Thunderbolt 2 technology and comes with ports that include USB 3.0, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, audio, and more. There's also an integrated fan that helps keep the Mac, PCIe cards, and drives running smoothly. Furthermore, the Thunderstudio can be rack mounted with an optional bracket kit.
