    Thunderbolt 2

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    With Thunderbolt 2 now built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect up to three 4K displays at once. Thunderbolt 2 gives you up to 20 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch. Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

      Great support when you need it!

      I have the older R4 unit, 3 of the 4 drives were configured on a RAID 5, with drive 4 assigned as a global spare in 2013. Today I heard one of the drives start I have the older R4 unit, 3 of the 4 drives were configured on a RAID 5, with drive 4 assigned as a global spare in 2013. Today I heard one of the drives starting to go south, but not to the point of total failure where the R4 detected any problems. I called at 6PM on a Friday and my call was promptly answered. The tech helped me to check the logs to ensure it was drive #3 that was failing, it was. He helped me force it off line manually which made the unit start an auto-rebuild of the RAID 5 array. Thank you promise for saving my data!
