Product Description

(Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 to 6Gb/s SATA RAID Storage)

Your ARC-5026 features two cutting-edge interfaces, Thunderbolt and SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Thunderbolt technology is a revolutionary high-speed, dual protocol I/O technology designed for performance, simplicity and flexibility. Thunderbolt I/O technology lets you move data between high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices on a single, compact port. Both data and display signals can be sent and received at the same time through dual 10Gbps channels. A single cable attached to one of the ports provides 2 channels able to achieve the 10Gbps speeds flowing both ways simultaneously. A single Thunderbolt port supports hubs as well as a daisy chain of up to seven Thunderbolt devices. To improve bandwidth transmission, Thunderbolt has implemented two duplex (PCIe and Display Port) channels into the controller and each channel can provide full bi-directional performance.

ARC-5026 is 4-bay 6Gb/s SATA Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 storage with RAID control capabilities solution for Mac environment. Thunderbolt host interface make ARC-5026 RAID storage well suited for SOHO group professional who work at home and or in the office. Thunderbolt technology is developed for high speed data transfers. The data transfer rate at the speed of 10Gb per second. Thunderbolt port is shared by multiple devices and can transfer data equally distribute to all connected devices. ARC-5026 incorporated on-board high performance ARM_based storage I/O processor and with 1GB DDR3 SDRAM memory on-board with ECC protection to deliver true high performance hardware RAID for the demands of serious to deliver true high performance hardware RAID for the demands of serious HD media creators needs. For example, the benefit for video editor by using ARC-5026 to unleash their professional creativity work in real-time, with the high-bandwidth allow large amount of audio and video capture/mixing devices transferred faster with low latency and high-accurate synchronization at 10Gbps.
