SANLink2 10GBase-T allows a Thunderbolt™ 2 host computer to directly connect to 10Gbps ethernet.
Twenty gigabits per second.
SANLink2 continues the groundbreaking legacy of its predecessor by using Intel's revolutionary Thunderbolt 2 connectivity to bridge together desktop and portable systems directly to a high-speed Fibre Channel SAN. Featuring dual 8Gbps Fibre
Channel ports and the 20Gbps speed of Thunderbolt 2, SANLink2 introduces an entirely new storage connectivity that the world has never before seen - until now.
High-speed connectivity meets the Mac Pro.
The future of desktop computing meets high-speed Fibre Channel SAN
connectivity with the powerful new Mac Pro and SANLink2. And now, a Mac
Pro or MacBook Pro can also directly connect to 10Gb Ethernet into the
network. Blend two of the world’s most advanced technologies together to
create the perfect multimedia work environment where system performance
transcends into something of artistic brilliance.
Triumph the 4K workflow.
Whenever high-speed capabilities are placed into the equation, everything changes. With SANLink2, all storage bottlenecks for desktop and portable computing systems are immediately alleviated through the introduction of Fibre Channel or 10GbE connectivity into the work process. 4K (Ultra HD) environments consisting of bandwidth-hogging post-production and broadcasting operations now become seamless workflows where downtime ceases to exist.
Streamline the creative process.
Real-time editing of multimedia files in their native, uncompressed formats has always been a challenge for creative professionals. With SANLink2 however, the need for costly rendering time due to proxy editing is eliminated. Experience the ability to access low-latency, high-bandwidth storage and discover reduced file loading periods, instantaneous response times during timeline scrubbing, and drastically faster large media file transfers.
