Sonnet expands xMac lineup

AUTHOR: Inavate

Sonnet has released the xMac mini Server 2H, a second model of the company's xMac mini Server Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express (PCIe) expansion system and 1U rackmount enclosure for a Mac mini with a Thunderbolt port.

It enables the use of two half-length, full-height PCIe cards, allowing users to select from and install the majority of Thunderbolt-compatible cards into either slot. The original xMac mini Server accommodates one full-length, full-height PCIe card and one half-length, half-height (low-profile) card.

It includes a 100W power supply and employs variable-speed fans to cool the cards and computer. The xMac mini Server's second Thunderbolt port enables the daisy-chain connection of additional Thunderbolt peripherals.
