2U 16 bay 2.5″ Thunderbolt 3 Storage and PCIe Expansion
Netstor NA338TB3 is equipped with Intel’s latest Thunderbolt™ 3, 40Gbps, bi-directional interface being able to instantly, easily empower large storage capacity and PCIe expansion slots to Thunderbolt™-enabled computers. It also provides three PCIe 3.0 slots within the storage chassis that allow the users to make an easy expansion of varied specialty PCIe cards to the Thunderbolt 3 Mac. Except the necessary RAID adapter card to be added, the professionals can still choose to attach two more pro cards such as video capture, video transcoding, audio accelerator, network card and so on in the 2U storage to add extra performance to Thunderbolt Mac.
The Perfect Partner for Transportable Rack Application
Providing video producers with features of light-weighted, easy carrying and high mobility for outdoor actions and events, the Thunderbolt™ 3 storage is designed 2U low height and 42 cm short deep to fit accurately the easy installation characteristics on transportable rack, suitable for both on-site and in-studio real-time editing and streaming 4K UHD digital content workflows.
Precise Design, Powerful Inside
Although designed for the precise 2U short deep chassis, the front NA338TB3 still supports up to 16 hot-swap 2.5″ drive trays. Creators can install ultra-fast SSDs or high-capacity 2.5-inch HDDs according to their need for transmission. Also, the 2U storage has world’s exclusive expansion infrastructure for attaching up to 3 full-height, full-length PCIe cards to any Thunderbolt-equipped computers. Regardless of installing RAID card for high fault tolerance RAID protection of drive data, or essential video capture/editing cards for video professionals, the installation and expansion are achieved effortlessly through Netstor’s enclosure design. With only one single Thunderbolt™3, blazing-fast 40Gbps, cable connection between NA338TB3 and Mac for delivering the effective expansion capability, your Mac immediately becomes a powerful workstation.
