3U 16 bay Thunderboltâ„¢2 Storage and PCIe Expansion
NA333TB VideoNetstor new NA333TB is the first Thunderbolt™2 rackmount solution combined with storage and PCIe expansion function ideal for video editors and video professionals who use the Thunderbolt-equipped concise form-factor computers such as Mac Pro 2013, Mac mini, iMac, MacBook Pro for their work. The storage is designed to be immediately converted into a RAID subsystem providing various RAID levels such as RAID 0, 1, 10, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, 60, and JBOD for high-performance and maximum data protection as any standard SAS/SATA 6G/3G PCIe RAID card with Thunderbolt driver is installed inside.

Transforming Small System into Powerful One
NA333TB_Thunderbolt 2The 3U 16-bay NA333TB enclosure uses Intel’s latest Thunderbolt™2 technology featuring ultra-fast I/O performance 20Gbps for any host with Thunderbolt port, and ultra-flexibility to daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt devices including a display via single Thunderbolt chain. Through the PCIe expansion function of the NA333TB, any PCIe add-on cards including RAID card, video capture card (e.g. Red Rocket card), Fiber channel or 10G network interface card, and audio/graphics accelerator card is able to be Thunderbolt-enabled and empowered to accomplish tasks in all fields.

Making High Speed SAN Available to Mac mini Server
Any Fibre Channel HBA or 10G network interface card with Thunderbolt Aware driver can be installed inside the 3U 16-bay enclosure to make SAN available to Mac mini Server. By the network interface card inside NA333TB and the Xsan software on Mac mini Server, video editors of work-group in collaboration are able to request and share data immediately through the high-speed Fibre Channel or 10G Ethernet SAN network.
