Akitio Thunder Dock for Mac Users

BANGALORE, India, March 18, 2014: Apical, a distributor for solution-based product line, has announced the launch of Thunder Dock exclusively for MAC users from Akitio exclusively designed for Mac users. The Thunderbolt dock links past, present and future technology to the MAC with just one Thunderbolt cable.

Thunderbolt is a unique connection technology that simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. Thunderbolt I/O technology offers two channels on the same connector with 10 Gbps of throughput in both directions which makes Thunderbolt fast and flexible.
Akitio Thunder Dock is up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800. The Thunder Dock allows users to access their data on both legacy and future storage drives by providing multiple host ports for USB 3.0, eSATA and FireWire 800. Akitio Thunder Dock also has two Thunderbolt ports for daisy chaining additional Thunderbolt devices and storage.

Simple connection using one cable from dock to the computer will enable users to access all additional storage drives connected to dock with the Thunderbolt interface guaranteed lighting fast data transfer rates. Five additional Thunderbolt devices can be accessed using the second port in a new Thunderbolt Daisy Chain design and also two independent eSATA controllers promises the maximum transfer rate for each eSATA port of 370MB/s when second eSATA storage device is connected.

The two USB 3.0 ports both support UASP (USB attached SCSI protocol) for increased performance over USB 3.0. The same ports can also be used to connect the older USB 2.0 storage drives. Popular with Mac users but now replaced by Thunderbolt and USB 3.0, the FireWire interface can still be used through the Akitio Thunder Dock. Two eSATA ports are also available to hook up external eSATA drives.

Pricing and availability
Akitio Thunder Dock comes with a price of Rs. 30,000. It will be made available from March end with Apical with a 1-year warranty.
