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 and a 4U Rack Mount Chassis.
The JMR Lightning LTNG-XQ-8-RM 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 unique chassis design provides “Lightning in a Drawer” functionality: The LTNG-XQ-8-RM is a “sled” device that docks into a provided bracket that installs into a conventional rack equipment cabinet (using only the front vertical rail) and then slides into the docking bracket for quick, easy installation or servicing. The unit also docks with the popular JMR Mac Pro Bracket model MPRO-DUAL-RM which provides a 16” deep “shelf” to accommodate the Lightning XQ as well as a Mac Pro computer all in 4U of rack space.
The LTNG-XQ-8-RM 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-RM 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-RM is also available via its four Thunderbolt expansion ports.
