​JMR Highlight Thunderbolt Expansion

JMR is highlighting its latest Thunderbolt and Pro Bracket product offerings for the Mac Pro and Mac mini at the 2017 NAB show.

The Thunderbolt product family is intended for Apple users who may have only Thunderbolt expansion available, but want to connect to PCIe peripherals. The LTNG-XQ products are the only storage systems on the market featuring four full-bandwidth PCIe slots, using two independent Thunderbolt 2 20Gb/s bridge circuits: One Thunderbolt 2 bridge drives two slots, and a second internal Thunderbolt 2 bridge drives the other two slots. Connections to a host like the Mac Pro include using two of the three available Thunderbolt 2 bus connections to the Mac. Daisy-chain expansion beyond the LTNG-XQ is also available via its four Thunderbolt 2 expansion ports. 

The JMR SiloStor NVMe SSD is described as a full-length, half-height PCIe 3.0 x8 drive that adds up to 8TB high-availability storage to any server, computer or workstation using the latest V-NAND technology. It occupies a x16 PCIe slot and may be connected via Thunderbolt PCIe expansion to those computers offering this capability. The cards will come in 2, 4 and 8TB versions. 

JMR’s updated BlueStorSHARE Networked Storage Server targets small to medium size studios. SHARE is a 3U 16 bay server available in 32, 48, 64, 96TB and can scale to 672TB with a single head unit. The system offers a multitude of enterprise features including 16 6Gb/s SAS/SATA disk drive bays, four (N+1 configured) high-velocity cooling fans, dual 620W (N+1) hot-swappable power supplies, dual internal SAS Expanders, four 1 Gb/s NIC ports or optional Dual/Quad 10Gb/s and a high-performance motherboard with an Intel Quad Core CPU.
