    The PROMISE SANLink3 F2 16Gb Thunderbolt 3 adapter offers dual 16 Gbps Fibre Channel ports that auto negotiate with 16 Gbps and lower-speed FC devices and is compatible with 16 Gbps optical SFPs with optical cabling as well as with Apple 4 Gbps SFP-SFP cables. The SANLink3 adapter runs at full-duplex bandwidth over a single Thunderbolt 3 connection and delivers full native FC speeds. Dual Thunderbolt 3 I/O ports allow SANLink3 to daisy chain up to a total of six Thunderbolt 3 devices, including PROMISE Pegasus3 Thunderbolt 3 RAID storage systems and Thunderbolt 2 devices using the Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (not included).

    SANLink3 enables any Mac system with Thunderbolt 3 I/O technology—such as the new MacBook Pro, iMac, or iMac Pro—to connect to a Fibre Channel SAN. SANLink3 is a fully qualified solution for OS X and Xsan. Any of these systems can connect to or act as an Xsan Metadata controller without system type limitations. SANLink3 is the perfect qualified companion for use with PROMISE VTrak x10 and VTrak x30 series Fibre Channel RAID subsystems, as well as other industry-standard Fibre Channel enabled storage devices.

    With its simple and elegant design, SANLink3 delivers a complete out-of-the-box solution. Install the software driver and simply plug in your SANLink3 with power adapter into a Thunderbolt 3 port and you're ready.

    Thunderbolt 3

    Thunderbolt 3 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. PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt 3, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    With Thunderbolt 3 now built into the new iMac, iMac Pro, and MacBook Pro, you can connect up to two 5K displays at once. Thunderbolt 3 gives you up to 40 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.
