Today's ultra-light notebooks, mini, and all-in-one desktop computers now have tremendous processing power–power that many thought would only be possible in full-size workstation or large desktop computers. Smaller in size and more portable, they're very desirable. For pros in the creative fields, processing power alone is not enough. A prime example is the new Mac Pro. Proven to be a processing powerhouse and packed with Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 ports, it lacks the PCIe expansion slots necessary to install specialty cards to connect various video and audio inputs, for transcoding data, and to connect to high-speed storage and networks. With the Echo Express III-R, Sonnet has created a solution that leverages the paradigm shift enabled by Thunderbolt technology, allowing PCIe expansion slots to be connected outside a computer. This rackmount Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion chassis makes it possible for you to connect three professional video capture, audio interface, SAS or SATA HBA, 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controller PCIe cards to any Mac® with a Thunderbolt port.
Using the Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kit, you can install two 5.25-inch mobile rack devices inside the III-R's enclosure and easily connect them to cards installed in the chassis. Connected to a 6Gb/s SAS host controller card, you could add an internal LTO 6 tape drive for backups plus an enclosure for four swappable 2.5-inch SSDs for fast storage. An alternate configuration might include a Sonnet Qio™ MR pro universal media reader (with its interface card installed in one of the chassis' PCIe slots) for quick ingests of files from SxS™, P2, and CF™ memory cards. Or, install a 6Gb/s eSATA host controller in one of the chassis' slots and connect one full-height mobile rack enclosure for three swappable 3.5-inch hard disk drives—you can migrate your old Mac Pro's drives to your new system. The Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kit includes an internal 100W power supply inside to power the installed devices, a large internal fan to cool the installed devices, and mounting hardware to secure the devices and the kit itself. To make your selections even simpler, Sonnet offers preconfigured kits that include the mobile rack devices, PCIe card, and necessary cables; you provide drives as necessary. No matter what you choose, the Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kit enables you to add more devices to your rack without taking up additional rack space.
