Four-slot PCIe expander with 8 hot-swap SAS/SATA disk drive bays and carriers and internal ATTO 6Gb SAS RAID controller and 4 Thunderbolt 2 Ports.
The JMR Lightning LTNG-XQ-8-DT is a four-slot to PCIe 3.0 expander with quad (4) Thunderbolt 2 ports and an internal hardware (6Gb SAS) RAID controller and an 8-bay disk RAID array for working storage. The product is Intel-Certified product featuring four PCIe 3.0 x16 (mechanically, x4 electrically) expansion slots and quad 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 I/O ports.
The LTNG-XQ-8-DT supports all compatible PCIe cards, up to full-height and full-length peripherals. It provides extra DC power connections for GPUs requiring those additional connections.
Included in this desktop product is a Thunderbolt compatible ATTO SAS RAID controller installed in one of the PCIe slots, and an integrated, hot-swappable RAID disk storage subsystem which may be populated with any compatible 2.5” SFF drives, either rotating or SSDs – thus providing “on board” storage up to 32TB!
The LTNG-XQ-8-DT is the only product on the market featuring four full-bandwidth PCIe slots, using two independent Thunderbolt 2 20Gbps bridge circuits: One Thunderbolt bridge drives two slots, and a second internal Thunderbolt bridge drives the other two slots.
Connections to the host Mac Pro include using two of the three available Thunderbolt bus connections to the Mac. Daisy-chain expansion beyond the LTNG-XQ-8-DT is also available via its four Thunderbolt expansion ports.
