Sonnet xMac Pro Server

PCIe 2.0 expansion system/4U rackmount enclosure for new Mac Pro with Thunderbolt 2 ports. Integrated 300W power supply and auxiliary power connector for installed cards.

Expand & Secure Your Mac Pro
Building on the concept of our award-winning xMac mini Server for Mac® mini, we designed an expansion system that safely encloses the latest Mac Pro® into a tightly integrated 16" deep rackmount enclosure, incorporates PCIe card expansion with three PCIe 2.0 slots and 20Gbps Thunderbolt™ 2 technology, and provides the capability to add peripherals with optional Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits.

The new Mac Pro is an object of desire, but a lustrous finish hides its true beauty within-massive power. If you're a pro user in the video or audio industries, the Mac Pro offers the power you need, but lacks the built-in expandability you count on. In order to achieve this engineering feat, Apple® designers stripped away components and space to a minimum, taking out PCIe slots and drive bays, and packed the remaining components into a small cylinder. Its compact size makes the new Mac Pro more transportable and rackable, but prevents onboard installation of PCIe expansion cards. In addition, the computer still requires an enclosure to make it road- or rack-ready and provide convenient cable management.

Sonnet's xMac™ Pro Server PCIe 2.0 expansion system/4U rackmount enclosure addresses these issues and increases a Mac Pro's potential in a big way. With amazing expansion capabilities, an easy to maintain modular design, and support for a wide range of popular mobile racks, carts and portable rack cases, xMac Pro Server is the perfect solution for expanding the power of your Mac Pro.
  • Makes Your Mac Pro Road-Ready-4U rackmount enclosure securely holds the computer and PCIe cards in place, adding mobility to your Mac
  • Three PCIe Slots-Supports three full-length, full-height, single-width cards, or one double-width card plus one single-width card
  • Thunderbolt 2 Interface-Maximum performance with Mac Pro, backward compatible with devices equipped with 10Gbps Thunderbolt technology
  • Upgradeable-When available, upgrade to 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 Technology with a replacement Thunderbolt interface card
  • Power for High Performance PCIe Cards-Integrated 300W power supply provides plenty of power for any cards you install; 75W auxiliary PCIe power connector enables use of power hungry cards such as the Avid Pro Tools|HDX or the RED ROCKET-X
  • Provides Space for Installing Additional Devices-Using optional Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits, you can install HDDs, SSDs, a tape or optical drive, and more inside the xMac Pro Server's enclosure
  • Remarkably Quiet-Temperature-controlled, variable-speed fans automatically and quietly cool the cards
  • Front Panel Operation, Rear Panel Connectivity-Front panel power button activates power switch on Mac Pro; USB 3.0 port enables connection of keyboard, mouse, thumb drive, etc.; two Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 3.0, and HDMI ports are mounted at the rear of the chassis for easy connectivity
  • Energy Efficient-Variable-speed fans automatically adjust to the unique needs of each configuration, and the auto power on/off feature ensures there is no energy wasted with cards powered on when the Mac Pro is sleeping or off
  • Supports Thunderbolt Expansion-Enables daisy chain connection of additional Thunderbolt technology devices when other Mac Pro Thunderbolt ports are in use
  • Every Thunderbolt-Compatible Card Supported-Works with every Thunderbolt-compatible PCIe card, regardless of length or height
  • AVID Qualified for Pro Tools|HDX & HD Native and Media Composer/Symphony
  • New Thunderbolt Cable & ThunderLok Included-Includes Thunderbolt cable and ThunderLok Thunderbolt connector retainer clip to secure cable from accidental disconnections
