LTNG-XQ-8-DTMP-B is a desktop tower product providing the features of the LTNG-XQ-8-DT (including a dual Thunderbolt bus architecture, onboard PCIe switches, four x16 (physically, x4 electrically) PCIe slots, dual bus Thunderbolt expansion/daisy chain ports) but also provides mounting and cooling for the Mac Pro computer itself. Once installed, the Mac Pro I/O ports for USB, Ethernet, A/V and power switching are all brought to the front panel; the Thunderbolt cable connections are brought to the rear panel and also internally connected to the PCIe adapter using two Thunderbolt connections. The dual daisy- chaining ports are available at the rear panel for easy expansion. This puts the Mac Pro, the 4-slot expansion adapter, RAID controller, and an 8-drive RAID system (960GB to 24TB), with sufficient power and cooling, all in one desktop product, measuring only 6-7/8"W x 18"H x 19"D and weighs just 27 lbs (without the Mac Pro installed). The 8-drive RAID system uses modern SFF devices, either rotating disk, SSDs or hybrids. Using SSDs, the RAID system can provide data transfer rates in excess of 2000 MB/s. A rack mount adapter kit is available to convert this unit to a 4U rack mount product in a few minutes.
